It looks like a big, white flying saucer that landed on its four legs, and if you’ve taken off or touched down at LAX in the past 50 years, chances are you’ve noticed it. The Theme Building has been an icon of Southern California Mid-Century Modernism since it was built in 1961, but it's been essentially closed to the public for years due to security and safety issues. Now, the City of Los Angeles has invited interested companies to submit ideas for what to do with the central area of LAX.
