Albert Frey, Early Influences

The focus of the lecture is Albert Freys life and work before his arrival in Palm Springs in the 1930s. Lecturer, Bill Butler, will look at Freys experiences in New York and in Europe that provide a new perspective from which to view his projects here in the desert. Known for his designs of the Tramway Gas Station (now the Palm Springs Visitors Center), Palm Springs City Hall, and the Lower Tram Station, Frey used a modern architectural vocabulary that was formed when he worked in Le Corbusiers office in Paris.

Bill Butler is an avid researcher, student of architecture, and former chair of the museums Architecture and Design Council. He has done extensive research on Albert Frey in the University of California, Santa Barbara, architecture archives and the Palm Springs Art Museums collection.

Each ticket includes museum admission. The lecture hall is located on the 3rd floor of the Palm Springs Art Museum.
