If any individual can be credited with creating modern architecture in Los Angeles, it would be William Pereira. A heroic figure at a time when the city was becoming a regional metropolis, Pereira was featured on the cover of Time magazine in 1963 for his work as master planner of Orange County's 93,000-acre Irvine Ranch. When he died in 1985, he had chalked up an Oscar-worthy list of design credits in a practice that spanned more than 50 years.

This was Skidmore's design studio, an assembly line of creativity, in which each phase of a project was planned and executed with numbing precision.
