Midcentury Architecture in Palm Springs – A Retrospect by Historian Alan Hess

Laguna Friends of Architecture will be hosting an introduction on “Midcentury Architecture in Palm Springs” by the well known architectural historian Alan Hess, plus the screening of “Desert Utopia” a documentary film from Design OnScreen.

This film features rarely seen interviews with notable architects and many examples of Post-WWII modernism in Palm Springs, displaying design ideas that are still relevant today.  Alan Hess will also answer audience questions in an open discussion after the film.

The meetup will be held at LCAD (Laguna College of Art and Design) Studio 12 at 2222 Laguna Canyon Road (on Tuesday March 26, 2013 at 6:30 PM).  Go to www.lagunafriendsarch.com for directions.

The event is free; donations are appreciated for the wine and cheese refreshments!

Scott,It’s true that military hitrsoy is getting short shrift in the academy these days. The Battle of Talas is an interesting choice, though it’s significance has been up for debate for some time there are a range of ideas from border skirmish’ all the way up to a battle to decide whether Turkestan would be culturally Muslim or Chinese. It certainly merits consideration on this list. BTW: You may want to try and search out the proxy codes for blogspot, wordpress, etc. When installed correctly, they allow easy access to those sites including the ability to post comments. I have them on my site, and there are other versions floating around cyberspace as well.Cheers.
