WeHo is the site of perhaps is most famous buildings, the Pacific Design Center, a controversial group of 3 huge buildings in heady shades of blue, green and red, huddled around a very small gallery.
His largest would be the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur.
I was there at the opening and walked right by Pelli and a group of people.
I would have taken a photo but alas I did not as I was enamored by the shear beauty of the building, a very modernistic yet somewhat organic structure, resembling a rotating cloud, in my opinion. The acoustics were not grand but they have fixed it since.
(The small map locates the tower correctly, with a red dot; the enlargement omits that dot, leaving a bright green indicator which is not the correct location of the structure.)
Images of the completed tower, including samples of the changeable (and animated) light show at the crown, are here:
