It's no secret that the producers of "Westworld" love architecture and cities; Architectural Digest uncovered that production designer Howard Cummings worked with Bjarke Ingels on the look of 2058 Los Angeles, and Vulture revealed that "Bjarke Ingels, one of the most future-drunk architects around, [consulted] on the city's shape; he raided his firm's cemetery of unbuilt designs and sprinkled them around the skyline."
Shooting reportedly took place in L.A. proper, at locations in Singapore, standing in for future L.A. (a suggestion of Ingels'), at the Southbank Centre in London, and most notably at Santiago Calatrava's City of Arts and Sciences in Valencia, Spain.
Both A.D. and Vulture's pieces are great, and we recommend you read them. Our contribution here will be the eye candy, as I've been compulsively pausing and screenshotting the show as I watch it.
