Just Another Day In SouthLA
“Planning is thinking beforehand how something is to be made or done, and mixing imagination with the product – which in a broad sense makes all of us planners. The only difference is that some people get a license to get paid for thinking and the rest of us just contribute our good thoughts to our fellow man.”
— Paul R. Williams
Paul Revere Williams (1894-1980) was a celebrated architect and an African American — a combination that few of his contemporaries imagined possible. By proving that it was possible, and doing so over a career spanning 50 years, Williams earned a special place in the history of Southern California architecture.
