If you want to get more into Modernism in Palm Springs there’s a great new way to do it. The new book about William Krisel and his “Palm Springs” is not just a book with more than 200 pictures and dozens of drawings of his architecture, it’s the first major monograph of Coachalla Valley’s busiest architect in the Sixties and Seventies.
Accompanied by essays of historians, architects and modernism appreciators, the hard cover book edited by Heidi Creighton and Chris Menrad shows Krisel’s timeless, modernist approach to design. In his first developments in the desert he worked closely with builders like the influential Alexander Building Company.
Even a street was renamed after William Krisel in Palm Springs during this year’s Modernism Week.
Flip through “William Krisel’s Palm Springs” and get inspired by what we consider a timeless, modernist approach to architecture.
