Over the course of his sixty-year career, architect William Krisel brought modernism to the masses. In his post-and-beam style homes, Krisel integrated his distinctive geometric forms into the surrounding natural spaces of the California desert.During the 1950s, Krisel worked closely with builder Robert Alexander to develop homes that were reasonably priced, undeniably stylish, and remarkably practical. They built thousands of mass-produced tract homes in Palm Springs—and throughout Southern California—and thus played a key role in establishing the desert modernism of the area.
