Rainbow Road: Peter Stamberg and Paul Aferiat

1:00pm - 2:00pm

The Saguaro Hotel celebrates Modernism Week with a special presentation by Peter Stamberg and Paul Aferiat the architects who re-imagined the property with the bold and inventive use of color for its 2012 launch. Over the past decade, this Palm Springs landmark has become world-renowned and one of the most Instagrammed hotels ever with its vibrant hues — inspired by 14 blooming desert wildflowers. Stamberg and Aferiat will discuss their inspiration behind the hotel’s design, a short history of the building and how it became what it is today.
