With the Encounter Restaurant closed, the Theme Building has nothing left to do but sit there and look pretty. Well, it’s doing a pretty good job at that; its swooping, flying saucer-like shape is a product of jetsetting culture, a future that never was and one that could still be.

LAX is awful. The hassle of off-site parking or sitting in traffic around the departures level has me in a hurry to leave sometimes. And the barely-held-together quality of some of the terminals has me groaning upon arriving back in town. But the Theme Building almost singlehandedly centers me and reminds me why LA is awesome. It embodies all of the positive aspects of our obsession with jetsetting, sexy culture: that the future can be awesome.
