Crawford is noted for its late Art Deco appeal. But the late-modern-style Times Mirror Building hasn’t elicited the same reverence. Part of that may be the result of Pereira’s reputation, according to architect and historian Alan Hess, who is among the signers of the historic preservation application. “He had this label given to him that he was Hollywood’s idea of an architect,” Hess said, citing a critic at the San Francisco Chronicle who decades ago zinged Pereira for his good looks, chauffeured Bentleys and steady female companionship. Pereira was viewed as a “corporate” architect, Hess said, and hence not a serious one in the eyes of critics. Yet he created such famous structures as the Theme Building, the iconic Space Age structure at LAX with its signature crossed arches and circular floor. “There was bias against big commercial architecture that really undercut his reputation during and after his lifetime,” Hess said. “Now we can look back at his work and see exactly how important it was and his creative ideas in architecture and planning.” Pereira’s Times Mirror Building was purposefully less dramatic than other buildings he designed in the 1960s and 1970s, according to the application compiled by Schave. It intentionally does not overwhelm the adjacent building that has been the centerpiece of The Times since 1935 and where a 5 1/2-foot globe anchors the lobby under the stern gaze of the newspaper’s signature eagle statue and busts of former publishers. (Soon-Shiong has publicly discussed moving the lobby artifacts to The Times’ new headquarters but has encountered resistance from preservationists and city officials who want to see them remain in place for public display.

At one point deep in the Federer-Anderson match, an exasperated fan shattered the silence with a pleading wail: “I need to watch some football!” Indeed, the start of England’s World Cup semifinal against Croatia was fast approaching. The crowd responded with a sympathetic laugh. Few thought the quarterfinal would go this way, especially with Federer winning the first two sets to match his tournament record of 34 consecutive set victories. (He didn’t lose a single set in winning Wimbledon last year.) It was inconceivable that he would then drop three in a row, even against the world’s eighth-ranked player. But Anderson, who was pushed to the brink of match point in the third set, held his ground and defied the odds. It was just the third time that Federer lost a Grand Slam match after taking a 2-0 lead, with the other two coming in 2011 at Wimbledon against Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and the U.S. Open against Djokovic. Federer is now 266-3 in such matches. “Especially with these long matches, saving your energy, especially emotional energy, is very important,” said Anderson, 32, who played collegiately at Illinois, lives in Delray Beach, Fla., and has applied for U.S. citizenship. “I feel like this whole tournament has been a really — I’ve been in a very good place with that.” Federer was asked if he felt disheartened after Anderson clawed his way out of an 0-2 hole to force a fifth set.
