After 10 years in that role, he spent another 13 as a professor in the department.</p></em><br /><br /><p>Christoper Hawthorne describes the supportive relationship Richard Weinstein had with another innovative L.A. architect at UCLA at the time, Thom&nbsp;Mayne, quoting him:&nbsp;&ldquo;He [Weinstein] thought of architecture as a noble profession.
