If he hadn't gone into fashion, Kevan Hall, formerly Halston's creative and design director, might have been the next Pavarotti. Hall, in the business for 22 years and now on his own with a new atelier, laughs, embarrassed at confessing he sings Puccini in the shower.

In the early to mid-20th century, L.A. gave birth to some of the most progressive and successful architecture to date, residential works in particular, from giants such as Greene and Greene, Frank Lloyd Wright, R.M. Schindler and Richard Neutra. Los Angeles-based architect Ray Kappe's work extends this tradition. Kappe has designed about 100 homes around the city in materials that include concrete and steel.

In front of Union Station near the entrance ramp to the northbound 101 Freeway stands a statue of Junipero Serra. The 18th century Catholic priest oversaw the building of 21 missions in California.

Architect Jose Rafael Moneo won the cathedral commission in 1996 by crafting a "Shrine to Junipero Serra."
