WHAT'S L.A.'S BEST MODERN STRUCTURE THAT DESERVES TO BE PRESERVED?

Wayne Ratkovich, president of the Ratkovich Co., which has restored such city landmarks as the Wiltern Theatre/Pellisier Building , the Oviatt and the Fine Arts .

The building I would most like to see preserved for the next 50 years is the Los Angeles Mall under City Hall East, adjacent to City Hall. My reasons are:

--It will take that long for most Angelenos to find it.

--It may take that long for someone already there to get out of the garage.

--It will serve as a reminder that cities shouldn't develop real estate.

--It demonstrates the danger of ever electing a developer to public office.
