It's the last week in December, when according to tradition we make up a bunch of awards and hand them out to all the best, worst, and shitshowiest of things that happened in Los Angeles real estate, architecture, and neighborhoods this year. These are your 2013 Curbed Awards.
Like every other year that listings have existed, 2013 was full of hideous and horrifying and weirdo listing photos. We know we sound critical when we talk about miles of marble or bizarre proportions or plaster statuary outcroppings, but we say it all with love: "hideous" is just another word for "highly specific taste that makes its owners happy, probably, somehow."
