The Petersen Automotive Museum reopened in late 2015 after a complete makeover, instantly becoming one of LA's most striking buildings. The exterior, by Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates, is made up of 308 metallic stainless-steel ribbons wrapped around the red-painted box building. Most people don't notice in passing, but if you look at the building from the opposite corner of Wilshire and Fairfax, you'll get the view above, where you can see the shape of a race car careening around the corner.

It looks great during the day, but under a twilight sky when it's lit from the inside, it's really stunning.
