The "Grand" Canyon View Estates Tour

Tuesday, February 21, 2017

The Canyon View Estates house tour showcased nine midcentury "lifestyle" condominium units designed by the architectural firm of Palmer & Krisel in 1962. Tourgoers were treated to the strong midcentury architecture of Canyon View Estates, including the exuberant use of patterned concrete screen block. 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 of the PSPF tour funded PSPF grants to participating Canyon View Estates homeowners associations. The tour was generously sponsored by H3K Design.
