Palm Springs is one of the only cities in the world, to my knowledge, where architects are just as famous as our Hollywood many celebrities.
As part of this year’s Modernism Week, the Palm Springs Walk of Stars will honor Pioneer Architect, John Edward Lautner, with the 412th Star Dedication.
The ceremony will be held on Friday, February 17, 2017 at 2:00 p.m. at 300 South Palm Canyon Drive. The star is sponsored by Modernism Week, Palm Springs Art Museum Architecture and Design Council, Palm Springs Modern Committee, and Palm Springs Preservation Foundation. The ceremony is open to the public and the media.
John Lautner designed some of the most iconic residential homes in Palm Springs, including the Bob Hope Estate and the Arthur Elrod House, both on Southridge Drive in south Palm Springs.
Modernism Week begins tomorrow, February 16 thru the 26th. For more information, visit http://www.modernismweek.com/
