ARCHITECTURE AND DESIGN

The collecting of Architecture and Design materials at the museum is a relatively recent development. It commenced with the bequest by architect Albert Frey in 1998 of the historically significant residence in Palm Springs he designed for himself, known as Frey II, along with the contents of the house including correspondence, business financial records, architectural photographs, blueprints, etc., and also an endowment fund for the restoration and maintenance of the house. Since that time, the museum has acquired other architectural archives, photographs, drawings, and funds for cataloguing and storage of materials. Although the architectural collection is still relatively modest, its holdings are becoming increasingly important and provide a solid foundation for future growth.
