About Us

In 2018, a group of dedicated preservationists and futurists got together and conceived an idea to form a group of organizations that would work together on specific projects that are important to our community. PSAA is the result of that dream.

The Palm Springs School

We are excited to announce our academic architectural book project, The Palm Springs School: 1930-1980, that will officially anoint Palm Springs architecture as much more than a collection of beautiful designs.  In recent years, we have examined the story of these talented architects, but their profound role in the larger story of modern architecture nationally and internationally has yet to be recognized--that’s the aim of this book. Alan Hess, architect and celebrated historian, will author the book.
