Photographer's Note

The palm tree and building that reach skyward seem to touch at their peaks, but at 73 stories high, of course the building is much taller.

This is the U.S. Bank Tower in downtown Los Angeles, formerly known as Library Tower. It is the tallest office building on the West Coast of the U.S. and, at 310.3 meters (1,108 feet), the 25th tallest building in the world.

Designed by I.M. Pei & Partners and built in 1989, it is neither round nor square, offering an interlocking set of granite planes and curves that step down in a series of terraces and ledges to colonnades of glass at the base (see for info).
