A comprehensive overview of an architectural practice in Palm Springs that spanned over 60 years during the 'golden age' of Californian architecture. Wexler's practice began with the design of prefabricated houses and portable classrooms constructed of light gauge steel. The extremes of the desert forced Wexler to create a specific type of sustainable architecture, which he applied to projects commissioned by people like Dinah Shore, Frank Sinatra, the Alexander Construction Company and Walt Disney World Resort. This is the first monograph on his work.
