The house Marc and Julie Schector had just bought atop a spur of rock overlooking Beverly Hills was small and claustrophobic, but it was secluded, with a rooftop view of the ocean. The couple had wanted a place in which to live, work and entertain, with soaring spaces, sweeping views and a place for their art. They hired architect Hagy Belzberg to transform the humble bungalow into an airy loft, while designer Milo Baglioni put his stamp on the interiors and courtyard.

Like a doctor checking a patient's skin for lumps, Hagy Belzberg places his hand flat on a plastered wall and glides it gently over the surface, feeling for irregularities. Amid the cacophony of power drills and jackhammers, he closes his eyes and inhales the musty, sweet smells of a construction site. It's the part of building the architect likes best: "I love to smell how it changes from how the earth smells to what the concrete smells like--the steel, the wood after it's up. It's so sensual.

Architectural symbols are rarely more layered, complex or self-aware than in a Holocaust museum, where the architect's nearly impossible job is to mark murder on a mass scale while at the same time providing some sense of resilience and hope. In some cases the resulting design takes on a slashing, dissonant form, as in Daniel Libeskind's 1999 Jewish Museum in Berlin. In others it tries to communicate at least a small part of the claustrophobia and confusion that awaited prisoners inside Nazi camps; that was among the central goals of James Ingo Freed, who designed the bluntly powerful 1993 United States Holocaust Museum on the National Mall in Washington.

Combining two Southern California cultural staples, this long, narrow pool has a broken line of white tile along the bottom that resembles a drag strip. Then there's black-and-white tile at the waterline--similar to the checkered flag at the Daytona 500. Santa Monica architect Hagy Belzberg collaborated with a Seattle colleague, George Wittman, to design the auto-inspired pool for their client, who customizes cars for print ads and TV commercials. That was the easy part.

Julius Shulman's architectural photographs seem to be everywhere. They play a key role in "Birth of the Cool" at the Orange County Museum of Art. They're also the subject of solo exhibitions at Santa Monica's Craig Krull Gallery and L.A. Central Library's Getty Gallery. Shulman, who's best known for his shot of Pierre Koenig's Case Study #22, used actors in his photos to evoke a lifestyle rather than merely a building. "I used people from the beginning," Shulman says.

Is it sacrilege to eat a sloppy backyard frank under a canopy originally designed to shield diners feasting on baby arugula salad with shaved pears? "Let's put it this way," says 35-year-old architect Hagy Belzberg of his umbrella. "It raises whatever environment you're in to a higher level." "The Wing," conceived for Joachim Splichal's Nick & Stef's Steakhouse downtown (and soon to appear at the new Belzberg-designed Plaza Cafe at LACMA), is now available for the home.

We appreciate the story "Patina Set to Move Into Disney Hall" (Oct. 1). But far from being a "bug light" for tourists, we believe the architectural vision of Frank Gehry and Hagy Belzberg will create a unique and privileged oasis for Patina in one of the premier cultural venues in America. Diners will have separate access to the restaurant as if it were a stand-alone facility, including its own valet parking. Every member of the Patina-Melrose employee family has been given the opportunity to join the Disney Hall team or another Patina Group restaurant.
