Palm Springs Modernism is characterized by a radical incorporation of local stone in buildings and landscapes. This presentation explores the origin of this idea in the work of Frank Lloyd Wright following his transformational experience of the art, architecture and landscape of Japan, and concludes with contemporary examples of architecture and landscape that create new expressions using stone.

Presenter Lisa Gimmy’s passion for art, architecture and gardens have inspired her 30 year journey as a landscape architect. Her Southern California based practice focuses on the design of residential gardens and learning environments. Her award winning projects include master plans for Los Angeles Community Colleges and numerous private gardens, including Neutra’s Kun 2 and Hafley Houses. She is a founding member of The Cultural Landscape Foundation’s Stewardship Council, a lifetime member of the Southern California Chapter of the Society of Architectural Historians and a board member of the Friends of the Virginia Robinson Gardens.


The entrance to the Lecture Hall is located on the third floor of Palm Springs Art Museum.
