Fodor's Review

World-renowned architect Cesar Pelli's original vision for the Pacific Design Center was three buildings that together housed designer showrooms, office buildings, parking, and more—a sleek shrine to design. These architecturally intriguing buildings were built years apart: the building sheathed in blue glass (known as the Blue Whale) opened in 1975; the green building opened in 1988. The final "Red" building opened in 2013, completing Pelli's grand vision many years later. All together the 1.2-million-square-foot complex covers more than 14 acres, housing more than 120 design showrooms as well as 2,100 interior product lines. You'll also find restaurants such as Red Seven by Wolfgang Puck, the Silverscreen movie theater, and an outpost of the Museum of Contemporary Art.
