It was three years in the making, but Jeffrey Daniels has won applause from his easygoing Laurel Canyon neighbors for building the only modern house on the street. Squeezed upward by the steep, 25-foot-wide site, he created for himself a stack of rooms--a garage-cum-drafting office and a soaring loft, with two bedrooms sandwiched between--that rises 42 feet above the street.

July 5, 1990 | LEON WHITESON, Whiteson is a Los Angeles architect and author whose latest book is "The Watts Towers of Los Angeles."
When Kentucky Fried Chicken franchisee Jack Wilke was looking for ways to update his 25-year-old Western Avenue restaurant, he decided on a radical move. "I challenged the notion that all KFC franchises should have the same standard design of fake mansard roofs (and) outsize Colonel Sanders bucket," Wilke said. "Why not do something radically different for a change?" Wilke, a noted local art collector, turned to architect Elyse Grinstein for help.

Overbuilding in the 1980s has led to an urban landscape strewn with strip malls, many of which are more than half vacant. Los Angeles architect Jeffrey Daniels suggests offering tax credits to owners of such properties in exchange for allowing temporary uses, like community centers, art galleries, youth clubs and vest pocket parks on the empty properties rent-free. Elaborating on some of Daniels' ideas, futurist artist Steven M. Johnson shows how malls could be reused under a program called "L.

The Spanish-style breezeways and high-ceilinged corridors of Pacoima Elementary School have rung with the sounds of laughing, shouting students for 79 years. But the aging building, severely battered by the January earthquake, badly needs renovating and improvements beyond state-mandated handicap-access, flooring and safety lighting work currently under way.

I know I speak for many in the architectural community in saying that we need more articles like "L.A. Architects: They Did It Their Way" (by Joseph Giovannini, Style, May 15). It is vital for the continued health of the profession that L.A.'s contributions and leadership in architecture be recognized throughout the world. JEFFREY DANIELS AIA Los Angeles Those bizarre designs are very appropriate for Los Angeles. They look as though they have already been wrecked by an earthquake.

A professor of travel at West Los Angeles College, he has played an instrumental role in designing and implementing a new educational program that prepares local students for careers in the tourism and travel fields. Although the program is administered and taught by teachers from the L.A. Unified School District, it resulted from Mancini's dedication and lengthy work behind the scenes.

The battle for the minds of students at Pacoima Elementary School--waged daily by teachers competing with gangs and drugs, Pogs and MTV--may someday move from the 79-year-old, cracked, creaking, dreary blue classrooms of today onto a new plane. Outside, there would be a carefully landscaped campus, fountains, an arbor, stone benches and interconnected breezeways decorated with student paintings. Inside, lectures on Martin Luther King Jr.

Kurt Waldheim, who is running for election as president of Austria, is neither a defender or friend to the State of Israel nor to Jewish people, as Jeane J. Kirkpatrick noted in her column (Editorial Pages, April 13,) "An Amiable Waldheim, Anti-Semitic U.N." Waldheim, according to damaging new evidence, is instead a former agent of the Nazis--a man who consciously contributed to the Nazi effort to exterminate Jews and others the Nazis deemed as "undesirables" during World War II. Despite the release of new, and seemingly more damaging evidence, Waldheim continues to be the front-runner in the Austria election--the last opinion poll showed him with a 11-point lead.
