Monsters of Downtown Los Angeles

I took these pictures on a short walk from Disney Concert Hall to Chinatown in downtown Los Angeles.

No signs of Godzilla, but the last picture seems to be his robotic cousin. I didn't know they made Erector Sets that big.

What is that last structure they are building?

Here's a link to an LA Times article on the controversy over this thing - which is apparently finished as you see it here.,1,7957405.column

If you hold your mouse over the picture you should see the "alt" text: "The New High School Overlooks the Freeway in Downtown Los Angeles" - yep, it's a part of a new high school. A useless part.

It should look fabulous once rust and freeway ivy take hold. Give another 20 years, you'll see.
