The "Grand" Canyon View Estates Tour

Tuesday, February 16, 2016

Several hundred "house tour warriors" enjoyed 9 midcentury "lifestyle" Canyon View Estates condominium units designed by the architectural firm of Palmer & Krisel in 1962. The strong midcentury architecture of this complex (which includes the exuberant use of patterned concrete screen block) is frequently featured in national and international design and fashion magazines. The interiors were full of great modernist objects and art. Tourgoers received a collectible tour map and a copy of the 2016 edition of PSPF's 40-page tribute journal The Architecture of Desert Leisure. A portion of the proceeds funded PSPF grants to selected Canyon View Estates homeowners associations. The tour was generously sponsored by
H3K Design. Photos courtesy Mood Creative.
