From time to time I come across some truly unique installations of travertine. The Getty Center Los Angeles has a rather unique combination of modern design combined with one of the oldest building materials known. It sits atop a hillside just off the San Diego Freeway (I-5) in Los Angeles, about 20 minutes north of Los Angeles International Airport (traffic dependent like every other time estimate in LA). If you are in the area, its definitely worth checking out. Plus you aren’t too far from Chavez Ravine so you might want to check out Dodger Stadium before it falls down.
