If you're flying into town, the first structure that will make an impression is the Theme Building at LAX. The space-age building built by African American architect Paul Williams in 1961 was most recently home to the Encounter Restaurant, but is in flux until another tenant takes over. While the restaurant is closed, the observation deck on top is only open on weekends.

Paul Williams was also responsible for the circular Founder's Church of Religious Science, the expansion and current look of the iconic Beverly Hills Hotel and Bungalows, and the elegant interiors of the original Saks 5th Avenue in Beverly Hills. He also collaborated on the LA County Courthouse in Downtown LA and designed over 200 homes in the LA area.
