Moore, late dean of the Yale School of Architecture

Penland Polygon is the apt name of a many-sided quintet led by the drummer Ralph Penland and presented Friday at the Jazz Bakery.

A couple of major ironies are folded into the title of the big new architecture exhibition at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, "The Presence of the Past: Peter Zumthor Reconsiders LACMA. " The first irony is that the title itself rings with echoes of architectural history. In 1980, when Paolo Portoghesi curated the first Venice Architecture Biennale, he called his show "The Presence of the Past," and he used it to explore the rising interest in history and ornament among the talented emerging architects of the day, including Frank Gehry and Arata Isozaki.
