Gordon Kaufmann was born in Britain, but moved to the United States in 1914. He designed notable buildings\: Greystone Mansion, Los Angeles Time Building, and the Hollywood Palladium. Kaufmann had established a name for himself for the work he had done in the modern style when he was hired to design the architectural aspects of the Hoover Dam. In his early career Kaufmann was a pupil of the Mediterranean Revival school, but later worked primarily in the Art Deco style, with a personal emphasis on massively thick, streamlined concrete walls which gave his buildings a very distinctive appearance.
