Frey’s Aluminaire House remains in shipping container in Palm Springs

A shipping container holding the Aluminaire House sits in the south parking lot of Palm Springs Art Museum on Thursday, September 3, 2020, in Palm Springs, Calif. The house, designed by Albert Frey and A. Lawrence Kocher, is planned to be reconstructed and permanently stay at the museum.

The Albert Frey Aluminaire House that was donated and shipped to the Palm Springs Art Museum about five years ago will remain disassembled in its shipping container for at least another year or longer.

The museum has been able to develop a road map to getting the house unpacked and reconstructed, museum Executive Director and CEO Adam Lerner said Saturday.

“It’s not going to be erected by winter of 2021-22. We know that for sure,” Lerner said. “But I hope that the path towards its building will become clear to you soon. We have a commitment to that.”

Lerner gave an update on the house during the first of the two-day Palm Springs Preservation Matters 2022 Symposium, held Saturday and Sunday at the convention center.
