Los Angeles City Hall
This 1928 building is only 454 ft. tall (32 floors) and it was illegal to construct a building taller until the 1960's. This is part of the reason Los Angeles has a lot of stumpy office buildings. They claim it was for "seismic concerns," but it doesn't take a brain surgeon to see the symbolism behind all buildings bowing towards city hall.
