Have you ever noticed the inverted clock tower that is tucked away in the northeast cover of the Grand Central Market building in DTLA? It’s right where the corner of 3rd and Hill Streets should be, but it’s inverted. It was created on the six-story parking structure by artist Tim Hawkinson back in 1994. Next time you are nearby, go take a closer look. It was made to look like the parking structure was poured up against a clock tower, and then that clock tower was removed. Take an even closer look and you will notice that the clock dial runs backwards and the Roman numerals are in reverse order.
