The Beverly Hills Waterworks Building, now known as the Fairbanks Center for Motion Picture Study

Built in 1928 at 333 S. La Cienega Blvd., this structure began life as the water treatment plant for Beverly Hills. Its "bell tower" held water-purifying hardware - infrastructure in disguise. In 1991, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences adapted it for use as a library.
