newer than I thought

I think I'd always assumed in the past, driving past 660 S. Figueroa (admittedly with my eyes on the rather too many lines of traffic) that this was another of Los Angeles's Art Deco buildings. Seemingly not - although decidedly under the influence.  When I looked up the details, it's a 1988 building (by AC Martin Partners) - which seems to me dramatically atypical for that precise moment, and much more retro than the other buildings that they were putting up in LA at the time (oh, and Alice was driving - no cars were put in danger by the taking of this photo).
