Two new projects are putting their own design or architectural twist on LA landmarks.

We visit the famed Bradbury Building in downtown -- a popular location for shooting films such as "Blade Runner." There’s a new tenant here: the coworking space NeueHouse. Avishay Artsy recaps the history of the Bradbury, and Frances Anderton talks to the company's CEO and the designer about moving into such a storied LA building.

And we visit the Beverly Center at the edge of Beverly Hills and West Hollywood. Its  new tenant is The Webster. We talk to the fashion retailer's founder, along with the designer, about brick-and-mortar retail in the internet age, and why place matters.
