#972 Naval and Marine Corps Reserve Center
Los Angeles

Designed as the largest enclosed structure without columns in the world by noted California architects Robert Clements & Associates, this Art Deco building, constructed between 1938 and 1941 by the WPA, is the largest and second oldest Navy reserve center in the United States. It has served as the induction, separation and training center for more than 100,000 sailors since World War II as well as the filming site for countless motion pictures and television shows.
