The Bradbury Building is one of the oldest commercial buildings in Los Angeles. It has been featured in countless movies, and has become a window through which people can view the history of Downtown Los Angeles. The book explores the rich history behind the building, and uses light, both cinematic and architectural to tie in the narrative. Light is an important element to the story due to the skylight of the building and the symbolism it holds in the utopian novel the building was inspired by.
