7. Century City

One of the lawyer visits takes place in 2000 Avenue of the Stars in Century City. This is a glass building designed by Gensler and built between 2004 and 2007 that sits in front of the Century City Towers, by Minoru Yamasaki who also designed New York City’s original World Trade Center. (Though not nearly as tall as the World Trade Center towers, the Century City Towers certainly carries some similarities in the verticality of the lines on the facade).

In Marriage Story, this office at 2000-Avenue of the Stars is where Charlie discovers that nearly every divorce lawyer in Los Angeles has been “consulted with” by Fanshaw so can’t be his lawyer out of conflict of interest.
