Congratulations to the Twin Palms Neighborhood Organization for a fantastic event Tuesday renaming the one-block long stretch of Arquilla Road in honor of famed mid-century modern architect William Krisel. The ceremony took place at the intersection of East Twin Palms Drive and Arquilla Road, the site where Krisel’s designs first broke ground 60 years ago. About 220 people, including the entire City Council, attended Tuesday’s dedication of “William Krisel Way.” Poor health prevented the architect, who lives in Beverly Hills, from attending. However, a video of his acceptance was shown.
Our next Brown Bag lunch session will be Thursday, Feb. 25, at noon in the Large Conference Room. The topic will be “Neighborhood Fund-raising Without Modernism.”
