Palm Springs Art Museum

Designed in 1960 by renowned mid-century Modern architect E. Stewart Williams for the Santa Fe Federal Savings and Loan, the iconic bank building was rehabilitated to create the new Palm Springs Art Museum Architecture and Design Center, Edwards Harris Pavilion. Located in downtown Palm Springs, California at 300 South Palm Canyon Drive, the site captures views of the nearby San Jacinto Mountains. A classic mid-century international style structure, the building was designated as a protected Class I Historic Site in 2009 by the Palm Springs City Council.

The Edwards Harris Pavilion is devoted to architecture and design exhibitions, programs, and archive study space. The museum also houses the museum’s growing collection of architecture and design-related works. In an effort to portray the grace and sensitivity of Williams’ Modernist designs, the firm consulted original drawings and plans, along with photos from the Julius Shulman photography archive.
