Angles and reflections at Century Plaza Towers

These are the buildings where I work, and I’ve been fascinated with their interesting angles as long as I’ve worked there.  Designed by World Trade Center architect Minoru Yamasaki, I find them more reminiscent of the National Gallery’s I.M. Pei-designed East Building than they are of their now-gone brothers in Manhattan.  Their unique triangular shape makes for some interesting perspective shots, and you can also see them reflected in the CAA building (also known as 2000 Avenue of the Stars), just across the park from the towers.  In late afternoon, after the CAA windows have soaked up a day’s worth of sun, the glass in the windows expands every so slightly, making the reflected lines wavy.
