I have one more image of The Broad, looking under the skin of the facade. However, this photo is more about Grand Avenue and the view looking south.
The sidewalk in front of The Broad is well ordered and sculpted to match the architecture. The round and lumpy blobs are abstractly styled landscaping. The embedded lights form a runway down the block.
Further down, you see more typical commercial skyscrapers. But substantial ones. My impression of Los Angeles as only a flat, sprawled, suburb-only city was incorrect. Yes, it doesn’t have the vertical scale of a New York or Chicago. However, it’s clearly a large city with hints of urban vitality.
