This project, housing a division headquarters for the Kodak Company, was the first project built in Central Los Angeles after the 1992 riots. It consists of a raised building on columns that ties together three existing buildings into a type of campus. This vertical separation provides a measure of security, as well as a shaded gathering space for the employees. At a few points along the very linear fa├žade, the architecture almost spontaneously transforms into sculpture, creating outdoor courtyards. Of these outdoor sculptures, the south end is accessible to the public by using the stairs.
