In his time, William Pereira was the epitome of the public image of an architect: a rugged individualist as well as a generalist who defined rather than mimicked emerging social values. He designed every building type imaginable, from houses to hospitals, as well as inventing some of his own, such as the Television Studios for CBS in Los Angeles. For the expansion of Los Angeles International Airport he convinced the authorities to adapt the facility to jet planes before jet travel was commonplace. he was a visionary whose wide-ranging interests and pragmatism surfaced at a time when a growing nation most needed those qualities. A long-overdue tribute to William Pereiras talent and influence, this book features in-depth, behind-the-scenes views of his best-known projects, captured in the stunning photography of Julius Shulman and Wayne Thom. Features on CBS, The USC master plan, UC Irvine, The Doha master plan, the Transamerica Tower in San Francisco, and the Los Angeles International Airport characterize the spectacular scope of his career. This first complete chronology of his work is a telling record of his vast achievements.
Julius Shulman is one of the best-known architectural photographers in the United States. His work has appeared in most major magazines and numerous books, both at home and abroad. Shulman shot his first architecture photographs in 1936, when he went with a friend to a new house in California built by Richard Neutra and took amateur snapshots with his new Eastman Vest Pocket camera. He sent the photos to his friend, who showed them to Neutra. Shulman has never looked back.
