Cahill Center/NE Corner
The Cahill center was designed by Thom Mayne's architectural firm Morphosis (see the Morphosis Cahill summary). Most consider Cahill striking in its architecture, and is described as “impossible to miss” (and otherwise) in this architectural review in the LA Times.

For non-Caltech visitors, the biggest logistical issue will be parking.
Cahill is in close proximity (~50 m) to Caltech's Parking Structure #3. Parking in Structure 3 requires a parking pass – of either the Caltech or visitor variety. Visitor parking passes can be obtained at various places around campus – the most convenient being the auto-kiosk at the SE corner of Structure 3 (pictured below).
