The “Grand” Canyon View Estates Tour

Tuesday, February 20, 2018

More than 300 tourgoers were treated to a showcase of 11 midcentury “lifestyle” condominium units designed by the architectural firm of Palmer & Krisel in 1962. Attendees enjoyed stunning interiors and the strong midcentury architecture of Canyon View Estates (including the exuberant use of patterned concrete screen block). Attendees received a collectible tour map (printed in a fan format) and a copy of PSPF’s popular 40-page tribute journal The Architecture of Desert Leisure. A portion of the proceeds of the PSPF tour was returned as grants to the participating Canyon View Estates homeowners associations. (Photos John Lewis Marshall, Mood Creative and PSPF)
