I am writing in response to "The Dream of a Central City" (Opinion, June 11). As an architect and president of the American Institute of Architects, Los Angeles Chapter, I am discouraged to find that the architects for the featured project were not mentioned anywhere in the article.

The biggest obstacle to a recovery is overcoming Los Angeles' negative image--compounded by the quake, coming on top of riots, fires and floods, said Kyser, chief economist for the Economic Development Corp. of Los Angeles County. Selling L.A.

Libby Pachares felt trapped. It was the middle of 1992, and she had been back to work only a few months. Still torn about having ended her maternity leave, she became infected by the anguish and self-doubt that spread over Los Angeles with the flames of the riots. Assumptions she held before the baby was born--that she would readily go back to work--wrestled with her need to nurture and protect her two children. But she had to work.
