The mid-century desert architecture of Walter S. White is experiencing a renaissance, withthe recognition of the Alexander House in Palm Springs as a National Monument, andrestoration of the Miles C. Bates house in Palm Desert as two of the highlights. But the little-known beginning of W.S. White’s desert architecture is found elsewhere:deeply hidden in La Quinta’s Cove, one can find the earliest buildings by White, and theintended sites for some of his most experimental designs. This lecture weaves together thestory of White's early life and work in the Coachella Valley from his slides and architecturaldrawings, adding new aspects to our understanding of mid-century desert architecture.Desert Architecture of Walter S.
