PSHS ADMINISTRATION BUILDING, DONALD WEXLER, 1957
(DEMOLISHED 2012)

Despite extensive testimony and effort by the preservation community, the Palm Springs Unified School District (PSUSD) voted to demolish its modern Administration Building designed in 1957 by the renowned local architectural firm of Wexler & Harrison for a performing arts building. In addition, the funding for the new building was approved by the California State Allocation Board.

The Administration Building was a fine example of mid-century modern design with few alterations. Its demolition versus implementing an adaptive reuse as a portion of a performing arts building is tragic and disturbing.
