Los Angeles Times Building

Recommended
Located directly southwest of City Hall, the impressive complex occupying an entire block is the fourth home of Los Angeles' renowned daily newspaper.In 1882, when Harrison Gray Otis became a partner in the fledgling newspaper, its total circulation was fewer than 1,000 copies. But it prospered along with the city that it actively boosted, and The Los Angeles Times eventually occupied a three-story building at the corner of 1st Street and Broadway. (The structure was bombed by union terrorists in 1910.) The current facility stands as an architectural record of the newspaper's continued growth and prosperity. The central Art Deco structure (1935) was expanded in 1948 with a 10-story addition, and again in 1973 with a sleek, black-glass and steel six-story extension by William Pereira & Assocs.The lobby features an original linotype machine, a large revolving world globe and a display of photographs and facsimile pages tracing The Los Angeles Times' first century. On the rotunda ceiling is The Newspaper, a double mural by Hugo Ballin.
