MCM DNA: Modernism's Roundtrip -
Los Angeles to Palm Springs and Back

Saturday, October 22, 2016

Time: 1-2PM
Location: Palm Springs Woman's Club, 314 South Cahuilla Road, Palm Springs
Cost: Sorry, this lecture is full

Author, historian and Palm Springs Preservation Foundation board member Steven Price examines the architectural cross-pollination of two very fertile Midcentury Modernist meccas - postwar Los Angeles and Palm Springs. Architects from one would often be commissioned to build in the other, and what they brought with (or took from) each locale added to the exotic and sophisticated side of both. Architects as varied and celebrated as A. Quincy Jones, Paul R. Williams, Richard Neutra, John Lautner, Wexler & Harrison, Palmer & Krisel - along with builders like Paul Trousdale and the Alexanders - contributed to the environment and lifestyle people are still enjoying, studying and pursuing in the 21st century. This lecture is generously underwritten by Hedge Vintage | Eclectic Furnishings. (Photo courtesy Mood Creative)
