Perched high atop the Santa Monica Mountains, the Getty Center is a sprawling, travertine stone, steel, aluminum, concrete and glass
complex designed by Richard Meier. Two grids define the space dividing the import of the buildings on it: Along one axis lie the galleries and along the other axis lie the administrative buildings. Meierís
awesome 24-acre vision provides a sweeping east-to-west panorama of everything from Hollywood to the Pacific Ocean. Take a virtual tour of the Getty Center via Robert L. Edwards photographs.
