Alexander Steel Houses - Designed by Donald Wexler (Excerpt from Journeyman Architect Documentary)
Design Onscreen – The Initiative for Architecture and Design on Film – presents a new documentary by Jake Gorst on Palm Springs architect Donald Wexler. During the 1950s and 60s, Wexler pioneered commercial and residential construction using steel. Wexler applied his ground-breaking techniques and unique style to hundreds of structures, including the Palm Springs Airport, the Larson Justice Center and projects for clients such as Dinah Shore and Frank Sinatra. Today his work provides inspiration for a new generation of architects.
This clip features the Alexander Steel Homes, built in Palm Springs, California. The music was composed by Hayes Greenfield.
