This first major monograph chronicling the work and architectural philosophy of William Krisel features examples and insights from Krisel’s own papers, culled from his personal collection as well as the extensive archives of the Getty Research Institute. Krisel’s architectural drawings and renderings, as well as many archival photographs, highlight examples of his custom homes, mass-produced housing, and recreational facilities in Palm Springs and rest of the Coachella Valley. Contemporary photographs are by architectural photographer Darren Bradley.

Heidi Creighton is a midcentury modern enthusiast, writer, collector, and researcher. In 2012, she purchased a Palm Springs home designed by William Krisel in 1957.

Chris Menrad, a Southern California native, was drawn to Palm Springs in 1999 by its abundance of modernist architecture. He is a founding board member of the Palm Springs Modern Committee, an organization dedicated to the preservation of Desert Modern architecture and a real estate agent specializing in architectural properties in the Coachella Valley. He lives in a Krisel-designed home, which was the first Palm Springs’ Class One historic Krisel/Alexander-built house.
