Downtown Los Angeles & Boyle Heights

Featuring two granite polygonal skyscrapers connected by a three-story atrium, this 1983 office complex is the work of renowned Chicago architecture firm Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM). The center houses a number of sculptures, including works by Jean Dubuffet, Robert Graham and Joan Miró, as well as a small museum documenting the history of the Wells Fargo bank in Southern California.
