Ambassador College
Pasadena, CA


PASADENA, CA --- Here's the Ambassador campus near Old Town Pasadena. It appears that the Auditorium will be saved, but unfortunately not the most unique Fine Arts and Science buildings that are sometimes referred to as the 'honeycomb' buildings. Building architecture like this is becoming quite rare.

This a beautiful and pristine campus that is a welcome respite from nearby Colorado Boulevard. It will be a real shame to see a treasure such as this disappear.

Contact the Modern Committee of the Los Angeles Conservancy for more information.
