“We looked at how to integrate the park and the city and the museum plaza,” Mark Rios, an architect commissioned by the Palm Springs Art Museum to be part of the design team, told the Downtown Palm Springs Park Committee last Thursday. Rios proceeded to walk the committee through what he described as the “big ideas’ guiding the park’s design concept.“ As the design now stands, the 50,000-square-foot rectangle park has grown briefly to include a plaza area, in front of the museum. The area would function as the home of the Aluminaire House, an early 1930s exhibition building design by Albert Frey that is to be put on permanent display in Palm Springs.
