Bradbury Building, Los Angeles

Architectural Building
Head downtown to see Bradbury Building and star in your own film noir. Originally designed by Sumner Hunt, Bradbury Building has been standing tall since 1893 when a millionaire businessman Lewis L. Bradbury commissioned it from George Wyman. Added to the list of the Los Angeles Cultural Heritage Commission, the building played a starring role in many music videos of artists like Janet Jackson and Genesis, as well as various films. Take a stroll through the structure to admire the Romanesque style that rules the decor--including an interior central court--or ride the open-cage elevators for a unique experience. Our Los Angeles travel itinerary maker makes visiting Bradbury Building and other Los Angeles attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Gorgeous building with insanely interesting architecture. Worth a quick stop for any Blade Runner fan :) This building is still in use, so you can only go in to the first floor, but that's all you need to appreciate the awesomeness and snag a few pictures.
  • A must for any Blade Runner fans, yes it's only the lobby of an office block but it's very cool that you can just wander in off the street and be transported to 2019. There's also a fantastic food court in a converted warehouse directly opposite.
  • Fabulous interior architecture. The exterior is deceptively simple. The massive glass roof / skylight means that if you visit closer to midday, the interior will glow from the added light. We've visited here many times and often take visitors there as well.
  • Amazing architecture and a definite stop for geeks like me. (Blade Runner)
  • an absolute treasure of architecture. you may recognise the interior of the bradbury building from various hollywood movies including blade runner, but standing inside and seeing the intricate wrought iron, the amazing natural light filling the space and the free-standing elevators is a truly remarkable experience. visitors can saunter in and see most of the inner atrium - highly, highly recommended!
