Adding a Person of Color to Modernism Week

Everyone should be aware of Paul Williams, the African American architect whose work can be easily identified in Southern California.

Any mid-century modern factotum is aware that white architects the Alexanders, Donald Wexler, Albert Frey and others designed buildings of glass and steel with soaring butterfly-like rooves.

Paul Williams who designed the Tennis Club, in Palm Springs, yet is more famous for being part of the team who designed the LAX spaceship, referred to as the Theme Building is one of the few architects of the era who broke the race barrier.
