There's the stacked pie plates of the Capitol Records Building, the UFO legs of the Theme Building and the Art Deco masterpieces of Griffith Observatory and the Eastern Columbia Building.

Between a busy concert and rehearsal schedule, it took over a month to find a spare moment where I could get access for photos.

It turns out that classical musicians take precedence over a guy who regularly gets lost on trains.

Clever open spaces and reflective inner walls bounce LA's famous endless sunlight all the way down to the ground floors.

That sunlight also famously caused one of the building's biggest initial issues: reflections.

The concave stainless steel surfaces reflected and focused the light, heating up nearby apartments and distracting passing drivers.
