Lisa to Speak at Palm Springs Modernism

Lisa will be speaking at Modernism Week on February 18, 2017. Her talk will focus on the incorporation of stone in modernist buildings and landscapes in Palm Springs, and will trace the origin of this expression in the work of Frank Lloyd Wright. The lecture will conclude with an exploration of the use of stone in contmeporary buildings and landscapes.
