Steel and Shade: The Architecture of Donald Wexler, until 5/29
Donald Wexler practiced architecture during the immediate postwar years through the 1970s. This was a time when architects enjoyed considerable freedom to employ new materials and technologies in their search for functionally beautiful architecture.
The extremes of the desert climate forced Wexler to develop a sustainable architecture, which was not only successful functionally, but achieved a timeless aesthetic appeal. During a career that spanned almost six decades, he designed numerous houses, condominium complexes, as well as banks, office parks and schools, and the Palm Springs International Airport.
The exhibition will remain on view until May 29.
