Frank Israel is most widely celebrated for a series of private houses that pushed the modern vernacular of Southern California architecture to a peak of innovation. Several of these projects, including the Lamy-Newton Pavilion, designed in 1988, were additions to existing buildings. A staunch supporter of incremental design, Mr. Israel believed that the juxtaposition of newer and older structures symbolized the heterogeneity of the contemporary city.
