Built in 1965 Designed by Albert Frey and Robson Chambers Conceived by developer Culver Nichols as an entry statement to Palm Springs, the roof is a hyperbolic paraboloid of steel I-beams and corrugated metal roofing supported by steel tubular pillars. Albert Frey was consulted in its 1998-1999 adaptive reuse as a sculpture gallery. Now it's the City of Palm Springs Welcome Center Historic Site Preservation Board #33
