Capitol Records Building
Whether or not you believe in the practice of people with no artistic ability scraping money away from those who do have ability, you can at least commend these record promoters for their fine taste. Over the years, Capitol Records has been at least partially responsible for delivering Frank Sinatra, The Beatles, Garth Brooks, and Radiohead. They also had the good sense to hire Welton Becket, famed Los Angeles architect, whose 13-story design resembles a stack of records.
