Herbert Burns Weekend — March 23-24, 2018

Herbert Burns Weekend, attended by over 400 enthusiastic participants, recognized one of Palm Springs' most important modernist architectural designers. The weekend events included an informative lecture, an architectural tour of many of Burns' residential and commercial commissions, and a closing cocktail reception at the Burns-designed Hideaway hotel. In conjunction with the weekend, PSPF published an 84-page book entitled The Design of Herbert W. Burns, authored by PSPF board member Steven Keylon. The book represents the most comprehensive and scholarly overview of Herbert Burns' career and contains hitherto unseen archival material from the Burns family. PSPF was fortunate to be able to include many members of the Burns family in the celebratory weekend. (Photos Gary Smith and PSPF)
