It happened all too often in recent years, especially when the UCLA basketball team played host to an opponent from the Midwest or the East Coast. Rival fans would travel across the country and, upon stepping inside the Bruins' legendary arena, would look at the narrow hallways and odd dimensions, the wide-open spaces behind each basket. And they would ask variations of the same question. This is Pauley Pavilion? Really? INTERACTIVE: Panoramic views inside Pauley Pavilion For all its tradition, UCLA's home court had fallen behind the times, squeezed into a narrow footprint, lacking the bells and whistles of a modern sports facility.

If smokers are entitled to specific areas or lounges at airports ("Trying to Steer Clear of the Smoking Lounge," Her World, April 21), the same should apply for those who do not want to be bothered by music at airports. Enjoying music (and we do) does not mean you want to hear it all the time and anywhere. At Hartsfield Atlanta International Airport, the music was so loud in the concourse that we could barely hear the television in our boarding area. If you want a quiet and peaceful area to relax or read a book, forget it. NICOLAS and MICHELE DZEPINA Mission Viejo

After years of controversy and a court battle involving local schools, the Long Beach Airport is moving ahead with a $136-million improvement project designed to modernize the facility without sacrificing its historic Art Deco terminal or reputation among travelers for convenience. The project also satisfies community groups and city leaders who worked to scale back earlier proposals, which they feared would have weakened the city's noise ordinance that limits commercial and commuter flights at the airport because of surrounding residential neighborhoods.

The house that Zoltan E. Pali designed for Sean and Hsiu-Yen Brosmith is tailored both to the needs of their young family and the spectacular site overlooking the San Fernando Valley. It's also a Modernist classic that recalls the simplicity and clarity of the Case Study houses, which created a new blueprint for indoor-outdoor living in the postwar decades. Sliding glass doors, shaded by an overhanging roof, open the 5,100-square-foot house to the pool.
