Full Details

To celebrate the release of Master of the Midcentury: The Architecture of William F. Cody, the Palm Springs Preservation Foundation will host a lecture presented by the book’s authors and moderated by PSPF board member Steven Keylon.  The lecture will chronicle the inspiration for the book which evolved from a modest effort to find a home for architect Cody’s archives at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo.  Research of the archives revealed that Cody’s commissions extended well beyond Palm Springs, most notably into the Caribbean, and that he was a very gifted artist as well.  The format of the lecture will include a conversation with the architect’s daughter, who will share her memories of her father and of growing up in Palm Springs.

The Palm Springs Preservation Foundation is a non-profit organization whose mission is “to educate and promote public awareness of the importance of preserving the historical resources and architecture of the city of Palm Springs and the Coachella Valley area.”  PSPF offers free membership as a public benefit. 

This event qualifies for 1.5 AIA/CES Learning Units (LU).
