Palm Springs March 22-24 2013 - Leisure Life Weekend

Postby The Mod Jetsetter » Thu Feb 28, 2013 1:03 pm

The Palm Springs Preservation Foundation will celebrate the Leisure Life - a celebration of south Palm Springs’ unique collection of midcentury “lifestyle” condominiums. Included in the weekend is the publication of a PSPF tribute journal (authored by board member Erik Rosenow) which places these fascinating condominiums in their respective social, historical and architectural contexts. Through rarely-seen vintage photographs and advertisements, the tribute journal captures the allure of the “leisure lifestyle” and the glamour it promised to middle-class home buyers.

The celebratory weekend kicks-off with a swanky Friday evening cocktail party. The Saturday house tour focuses on the Canyon View Estates condominium complex (designed by architect William Krisel) but features the best of other notable south Palm Springs condominium developments. The Sunday house tour of the Kings Point condominium complex shows how the lifestyle condominium phenomenon matured into modernist designs bordering on the “lavish.”
