of all the burger joints in all the world


I was waiting in the drive-thru line at that iconic California burger stand when I began to think of all the ways that the concrete masonry building was banal.  And yet, with a few interesting moments – the angled drive-up windows, for instance.  My proposal takes that window and wraps it over the entire rear of the building, Mies-like, allowing customers in the car to watch their burgers hop off the line.  The dine-in patio is flanked with stylized palm tree columns, hinting back to Hans Hollein and John Nash before him.  A central oculus sits over the point-of-sale, with the iconic red standing-seam metal roof rendered as a hip.
