Bradbury Building

The Bradbury Building is an architectural landmark in downtown Los Angeles, which was built in 1893 and commissioned by LA gold-mining millionaire Lewis Bradbury. This building has made many appearances in works of fiction and has been the site for movie and television shoots as well as music videos. The building is a popular tourist attraction, reeling in daily visitors who can learn some interesting historical facts about the building. Visitors are only allowed up to the first landing but not beyond. While for most of its existence, the Bradbury Building operated as office space, it later served as the headquarters for the Los Angeles Police Department’s Internal Affairs division and other government agencies. Between the years 2001 to 2003 it was home to the Museum of Architecture and Design. As far as pop culture goes, this building has left its mark in a number of science fiction films, music videos and various episodes of tv shows, most notably Pay It Forward (2000), Quantum Leap, and Janet Jackson's Rhythm Nation 1814.
