William Krisel’s Palm Springs
“This first major monograph chronicling the work and architectural philosophy of William Krisel features examples and insights from Krisel’s own papers, culled from his personal collection as well as the extensive archives of the Getty Research Institute. Krisel’s architectural drawings and renderings, as well as many archival photographs, highlight examples of his custom homes, mass-produced housing, recreational facilities, and commercial projects in Palm Springs and rest of the Coachella Valley. Contemporary photographs are by architectural photographer Darren Bradley.” – Gibbs Smith
