Mayor Pougnet leads charge to bring Aluminaire House to Palm Springs

Mayor Pougnet leads charge to bring Aluminaire House to Palm Springs
One of the most pivotal — and tiny — examples of early modern American architecture could find a new home in the desert. Mayor Pougnet leads charge to bring Aluminaire House to Palm Springs "For the past several months I have been in discussions with a group to bring this here. It is currently in New York. And I am pleased to say that we have gotten to a point that we are going to bring Albert Frey's Aluminaire House to Palm Springs," Pougnet announced to the Palm Springs City Council Wednesday night. "I'm going to help take the lead on the fund-raising for this effort." READ THE DESERT SUN'S ARTICLE HERE: The mayor has said the campaign needs to raise about $600,000 to bring the home out here from New York, reassemble it and conduct the sort of restoration an 83-year-old building almost certainly will require. A foundation has already been set up and can be found at http://www.aluminaire.org/.
