NEW! Often described as the “Architect to the Stars,” Paul Williams--first African-American member and Fellow of the American Institute of Architects--had a prolific career that spanned almost 60 years. He was equally comfortable working with Southern California historical styles and modern design, and became known for designs that were stylized and elegant. His vast body of work stretches from Beverly Hills to New York, and includes such luminary clients as Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz, Tyrone Power, and Lon Chaney. To celebrate Black History Month, we will explore the architectural legacy left by Williams, and discuss the inspirational contributions he made to each city his designs enriched.
