JONATHAN SEGAL likes to think big about small lots. The 43-year-old architect has become a master of urban development in San Diego -- designing, financing and building places to live and work on vacant, under built and unwanted odd-shaped plots in the downtown area. Other developers dismissed these sites, known as infill, as not worth the trouble. But Segal is drawn to them.

"Norman" is one of those intimate indies that makes an excellent case for micro-economics in filmmaking, with director Jonathan Segal wringing every bit of emotional purity and ironic humor that he can out of this teen coming-of-age in a life surrounded by death story. Dan Byrd, whose nice turn in "Easy A" last year began pushing him outside his "Cougar Town" comedy series comfort zone, stars as Norman, a complex kid with a lot of extra baggage piled on top of the normal high school angst.

INTERESTING article on Jonathan Segal and his work ("Floored by the View," March 16). However, the photo that included his daughter was a bit inappropriate. Picking a photo with a sexy 17-year-old girl in it for an architectural story may not have been the right choice. I'm not necessarily a prude, but my wife (32), my sister (30, an architect), her boyfriend (30, also an architect) and I (32) all thought it was a bit, um, odd. ALARICK YUNG Boston THE photo array confirmed my two worst fears about this beautiful-to-look-at and see-through floor.

Don't waste your time counting abdominal muscles, however; let this young man show you how to paint the town red. Any rituals at home before you hit the town? I hop on my right leg three times, spin around, open a book, get through 20 pages or so, play my guitar, then fall asleep and end up not going out at all. When you manage to get out, what's the perfect place for starter drinks or appetizers?

To know of her was to envy her. To know her was to not. On the surface, what made the San Francisco woman the subject of envy was her grand romance with a man several years her senior, a well-known figure who had once been her teacher. Although he was married, it was a dizzying and passionate affair by her account--the details of which she would tantalize friends with, saying she "couldn't really talk about it." The affair purportedly ended when she abruptly left the country for another job.

DON'T be surprised if one of the hotter bar scenes in Los Angeles develops not around a sexy new lounge, but at a restaurant. "That is what we do," One Group CEO Jonathan Segal says. "We put our bar right up front and center and build our restaurant around the bar." Segal is busy putting the finishing touches on Coco De Ville and the Bistro Bar -- dueling spots opening inside his anticipated New York City export, STK (an upscale steakhouse), on La Cienega's restaurant row later this month.
