Full Details

Join architectural writer Alan Hess for a new look at the story of talented Palm Springs architects who responded to a common set of midcentury architectural challenges.  Like the Sarasota School or the Harvard 5, the Palm Springs School of architects deserves its place in the development of Modern architecture. 

Sidney Williams (former Curator of Architecture at the Palm Springs Art Museum) and Janice Lyle (Director, Sunnylands Center & Gardens) will question Hess about the defining principles, experimental liberties, and creative designs of the Palm Springs School of architects.  They will address the efforts being made by the Palm Springs Architectural Alliance to publish a beautifully illustrated text that will demonstrate the broad significance of the Palm Springs School and its relevance today. 

$10 of each ticket will be donated to Palm Springs Architectural Alliance for their book fundraising efforts. 

This event qualifies for 1 AIA/CES Learning Units (LU).
