The Palm Springs Art Museum announced that it will unveil its new Architecture and Design Center on November 9. The Edwards Harris Pavilion will be the hub of the museum’s exploration of architecture and design, and will feature spaces for exhibitions, educational and community programs, and research. The 13,000-square-foot building will also include a museum shop, curatorial offices, and a storage area.

The Architecture and Design Center is located in a restored mid-century Modern bank in downtown Palm Springs. The structure was designed in 1961 by the celebrated architect E. Stewart Williams to be the Santa Fe Federal Savings & Loan building and was recently designated as a protected Class I Historic Site. The Architecture and Design Center’s inaugural exhibition, “An Eloquent Modernist, E. Stewart Williams, Architect,” will explore Williams’ contributions to Desert Modern style as well as the Coachella Valley’s architectural landscape.
