William Pereira helped define 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, which were the first of their kind. For the expansion of Los Angeles International Airport Pereira convinced authorities to adapt the facility to jet planes before jet travel was commonplace. This monograph captures Pereira's talent and influence, featuring in-depth, behind-the-scenes views of his most well known projects, including the CBS, USC Masterplan, the University of California (Irvine) campus, the Doha Masterplan, the Transamerica Tower in San Francisco, and the LA Airport. During the Frankfurt Book Fair, I had an advance copy of William Pereira and lots of people stopped to ask when it would be generally available.
