These 9 Buildings Will Soon Change the Los Angeles Skyline

Grandiose works of architecture might not immediately spring to mind when thinking of Los Angeles, the booming metropolis paved with traffic-choked freeways and dotted with movie sets. But the city is indeed home to some ravishing buildings, boasting historic landmarks by Frank Lloyd Wright, Richard Neutra, and Julia Morgan. And a few recent additions have drawn widespread acclaim, such as Diller Scofidio + Renfro’s Broad Museum, which opened its doors in 2015. In the coming years, the city is poised to add even more panache to its architectural treasure trove, with famed talents including Frank Gehry, Renzo Piano, and Ma Yansong making their mark on an already iconic cityscape. Below, AD has rounded up nine of the most exciting new projects.


Construction on this 25-story residential building, designed by HansonLA and Handel Architects, is slated to wrap up by the end of the year. Known as TEN50, the 151-unit luxury building will be downtown L.A.’s first new condo development in a decade.
