  • not really too much to see here for the average person; it's really for design professionals. there is a nice courtyard with a cool fountain to sit and ponder!  more »

  • Impressive design and offices nice to walk around. Hit list a bit with parking when visiting Wolfgang Pucks offices. Added one photo of incredible design.
  • I go here to look at furniture I can’t afford. Cool art exhibits too.
  • Great gym. Bonus -- it's empty most of the time. Don't think anyone knows about it.
  • Used to be the "Blue Whale" when I was last there in the early 80's. That was the nickname. You had to be in the business to go inside so a decorator I knew got me in. Interesting to watch a millionaire cowboy and his wife open up a suitcase full of hundreds and just start ordering all kinds of stuff. My jaw hit the floor.
  • This building should be a destination for anyone who likes architecture and design. I love taking pictures here. There is a never ending number of places you can photograph. I've posted a few!
