William Krisel’s Palm Springs: The Language of Modernism
VANCOUVER: On May 26th, the West Coast Modern League will present the Vancouver book launch of William Krisel’s Palm Springs: The Language of Modernism, with a presentation featuring Sidney Williams, curator of architecture and design at Palm Springs Art Museum, and Heidi Creighton, co-author and editor of the publication.
William Krisel’s Palm Springs: The Language of Modernism is the “first major monograph chronicling the work and architectural philosophy of William Krisel featuring 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, and recreational facilities in Palm Springs and rest of the Coachella Valley. Contemporary photographs are by architectural photographer Darren Bradley.” – Gibbs Smith, Publisher
