Donald Wexler Palm Springs

For anyone familiar with midcentury modern architecture, particularly in the Palm Springs area, the name Donald Wexler would immediately come to mind. For anyone familiar with the Southern California midcentury modern aesthetic, then the names Evelyn and Jerome Ackerman might roll off their tongues just as easily. Now, where does the Eisenhower name fit within this stylish mix? Eisenhower Medical Center’s newest Palm Springs location at 415 South Palm Canyon is a Donald Wexler–designed building that has been completely remodeled, with a few pieces from the Ackermans as well as photos from Palm Springs photographer Dan Chavkin. The Eisenhower Health Center at South Palm Canyon is not only a state-of-the-art health care facility, but also a midcentury modern treasure. To celebrate the unveiling, a living design legend will be onhand—Jerome Ackerman—for Masters of Midcentury California Design: The Story of Evelyn and Jerome Ackerman on Saturday, February 14.
