Mark #56 delves into the seemingly contradictory subject of architectural preservation in Los Angeles. Safeguarding the city s architectural legacy is a challenge: the city comprises 88 administrative entities that all have their own preservation ordinances, the city is largely a 20th-century creation, lacking the rich heritage of colonial and 19th-century architecture, and the legacy is primarily residential and mostly walled off.

Structural engineer Dennis Poon of Thornton Tomasetti explains the structural ideas behind the design such as the tower s twisting and tapering shape to disperse wind loads. Also studded with towers is Tomorrowland, an imaginary city in the eponymous movie that premiered around the world at the end of May.
