The Palm Springs Art Museum purchased the historic 1961 Santa Fe Federal Savings & Loan building in downtown Palm Springs and is in the process of rehabilitating the iconic building to create the new Palm Springs Art Museum Architecture and Design Center, Edwards Harris Pavilion.
The building, designed by renowned mid-century modern architect E. Stewart Williams, is a classic mid-century international style structure, and was recently designated as a protected Class I Historic Site. It features a ground level glass pavilion space that will showcase architecture and design exhibitions, a store, and curatorial offices. The building has a lower level that contains a vault, meeting space, storage space, kitchen, and restrooms with a total of more than 13,000 square feet.
When completed, the A+D Center will be the country’s first historic structure to be transformed into a free-standing architecture and design museum that is housed in a modern building.
