Ball-Nogues: An article last Sunday about architects Benjamin Ball and Gaston Nogues stated that the duo would be installing an 18-inch suspension project inside L.A.'s Centinela Area Building and Safety Permit Office. The project is 18 feet in size. In addition, a reference to their work on a three-story plastic form at this year's Coachella festival should have included the fact that the project was done in collaboration with students at the Southern California Institute of Architecture.

It might be the most carefully hidden building boom in American architectural history. Over the last 40 years, beginning with strict drug-sentencing laws introduced in 1973 by New York Gov. Nelson Rockefeller and quickly copied around the country, the number of prisons in this country has more than tripled, from 600 to nearly 2,000. In California, where the inmate population surged a staggering tenfold from 1975 to 2010, the construction of jails and prisons has accelerated even more quickly.

Two summer programs are being offered by the Southern California Institute of Architecture for professionals and the public. The Professional Development Program focuses on contemporary issues in architecture and urban design, real estate development, presentation techniques and related subjects. It offers day and evening courses or weekend workshops starting Monday through Aug. 31. The school will again offer Making and Meaning, an intensive five-week course for those contemplating a career in architecture.

Living in outer space is no longer a fantasy, but the trick is to provide a quality environment for people who will be confined for long periods in zero-gravity on a manned space station orbiting Earth. To that end, NASA-Ames Research Center at Moffet Field near San Jose has extended its grant monies to the Institute of Future Studies, Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-ARC), for design development of the station's crew quarters.

As a young architect and former Frank Gehry employee, I take exception to Nicolai Ouroussoff's assertion that during the early '90s, "Unlike the East Coast scene . . . there was no clear theoretical center here" ("Basic Instinct," April 6). Most of the architects he mentions--including Buresh, Lubowicki, Mayne, Moss and Rotondi--were teaching at the Southern California Institute of Architecture, better known as SCI-Arc. As a graduate student at London's Architectural Assn. in 1990, all I heard about was the Los Angeles scene and SCI-Arc.
