For anyone who has wondered what mid-century modern looks like, this home provides an example, although it was designed in the late 1960s. The multilevel wood-and-glass house, designed by Rex Lotery, a fellow of the American Institute of Architects, was positioned on its Brentwood site to capture natural light and views of Kenter Canyon, Crestview Park and city lights. The house has expansive decks off its pool, built-in barbecue and mini-bar.

"What we wanted, of course, was the building to metaphorically express its function," architect Ray Kappe said. He was referring to the Santa Monica bus administration facility he designed a few years ago with Rex Lotery and Dean Nota. And, indeed, when glimpsed from the 5th Street exit of the Santa Monica Freeway, the streamlined, two-story steel-coated structure with its curved corners and horizontal fins looks very much like a large bus, sleek and on the move.

David Spade, who stars as the power-hungry assistant Dennis Finch on the NBC sitcom "Just Shoot Me," has purchased a Westside home with city views and a tennis court for about $4 million. The actor-comedian listed his six-bedroom, 5,000-square-foot Beverly Hills home in October at close to $3.9 million. Spade, 37, has owned that home since early 1999. His new home, behind gates, is contemporary in style with floor-to-ceiling windows. Besides the tennis court, the property has a pool and a spa. Built in the late '70s, the two-story house with grand public areas, including a large dining room, has three bedrooms and seven bathrooms in slightly more than 6,700 square feet.

When developer Alexander Haagen was preparing to revive the Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza in South Los Angeles, he was frustrated that the plaza site was divided by Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, a split Haagen and his architects believed would hinder the complex's commercial success.

The sign is discreet, its wording polite, but its message clear. All the things your mother taught you are spelled out literally in black and white. Don't stare. Don't yell. Don't make fun of the way others speak, act or even pray. Except this is not your mother's house. The rules adorn the sparkling gateway to Universal CityWalk, the privately owned urban streetscape in Universal City that is part theme park, part shopping mall, part town square.

Growing up is difficult, for an adolescent or a neighborhood. The habits and patterns ingrained during the early, mostly unconscious years, make it hard to imagine a different way of being on the threshold of maturity. The east Hollywood district known as Olive Hill is about 70 years old--young for an urban neighborhood. Its first growth, laid down between 1915-30, has begun to be overlaid by a more confused second growth that many residents find troubling.
