The Bradbury Building

The Bradbury Building

Map
304 S. Broadway, Los Angeles, CA 90013, United States

From the outside, the brick facade of The Bradbury Building—the oldest commercial building in the city center—looks fairly unremarkable, but walk inside and you’ll be rewarded by architectural treasures inspired by an 1880’s science fiction story and a Ouija board. Highlights of the 1893 structure’s central court include ornamental cast iron railings, open-cage elevators, and geometrically patterned stairways, all bathed in natural light from the dramatic skylight above. Film buffs will recognize it as Sebastian’s home from Blade Runner and as the architectural office in the final scene of (500) Days of Summer.
