'Paul Williams: Architect to the Stars' with Eleanor Schrader
Fifty and Better Lecture Series

Zoom PST

Often described as “Architect to the Stars,” Paul Williams left an indelible mark on architecture during a prolific career that spanned almost 60 years. The first Black member and Fellow of the American Institute of Architects, he became known for designs that were stylized and elegant. He had an extraordinary capability with Southern California historical styles, yet he was equally comfortable with modern design. His vast body of work stretches from Beverly Hills and New York to Paris and Colombia, including such luminary clients as Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz, Tyrone Power and Lon Chaney. This class will explore and illustrate the architectural legacy left by Williams and discuss the inspirational contributions he made to each city his designs enriched.
