Architect John Lautner's Chemosphere (named for the Chem Seal Corporation's coatings used when it was built) is a unique Modernist building in Los Angeles. The one story octagon sits on a thirty-foot-high concrete pole in the Hollywood Hills.

It's home to the murderous Sam in Brian de Palma's 1984 movie Body Double. In real life it's been the home of Benedikt Taschen, of Taschen publishing, since 2000.

Troy McClure's house, inspired by The Chemosphere, in The Simpsons
