Austin, Field and Fry, Architects of Los Angeles, CA, presented a plan for an Humanities Building at UCLA that share much in common with the later Pereira building. Original building, Dickson Hall, was designed in 1965 by William L. Pereira and Associates; at the this time, Pereira's firm was beginning work on the Central Library (later named Geisel Library) at the University of California, San Diego; Pereira had a very close relationship with the Regents of the University of California in the late 1950s and throughout the 1960s;

Renovated and seismically upgraded by Richard Meier and Partners, 2002-2004.
