Enthusiasts from all over the world come to Palm Springs, CA every year during “Modernism Week” to marvel at one of the mid-century modern meccas on the planet. Imagine their delight when they see one of the foremost and iconic modernist architects walking down the street of a neighborhood he helped design. Everybody wave….it’s William Krisel!
William Krisel, along with former partner Dan Palmer, is famous for designing modern tract homes with flat, butterfly, or folded-plate roofs, open plans, and decorative concrete block walls. Palmer & Krisel’s client, George and Robert Alexander, developed the homes from 1955 to 1965, giving the town much of its modernist legacy.
