Aku Aku Motel postcard, from the collection of Tim Haack
Aku Aku Motel remodel, from Curbed LA
Curbed LA has photos of the recently completed remodel of the Aku Aku Motor Inn in Woodland Hills, just north of Los Angeles. Until very recently, the Aku Aku looked very much like the artist’s rendering seen in the above postcard from the collection of Tim Haack. The distinctive A-frame was demolished last fall, to make way for this completely blech new facade. Why did they even bother to keep the name?
