That stack-interchange has competition with Spaghetti Junction. Compare to Greater Atlanta:
Which one would you prefer?
Spaghetti Junction is interesting because of its use of box-girder support columns. Those are typical in west-coast interchanges. The 105/110 interchange isn't a full stack. There's no flyover from 110N to 105E, but it does incorporate HOV flyovers and the like. The interchange has a massive presence and that picture doesn't do it justice.
This is a pic of the interchange from the north, taken with my cell phone last November.
The only stack interchange that is more imposing to me is the Dallas High-5.
As a whole, I like the more symmetrical look of Spaghetti Junction, but California interchanges and freeways are something almost unique to their state.
