Overview

"Three California Houses: The Homes of Max Palevsky showcases three achitecturally important private residences now owned by and housing the expansive art collections of Max Palevsky. Each house has been built, restored or reworked by a well-known contemporary architect. The three houses together can be seen as an attempt to deal with architecture in Southern California in the twentieth century." Presented in significant detail are the Palm Springs House, by renowned mid-century modernist architect Craig Ellwood; the extravagant Malibu Spanish-style House, with interior renovations by renowned Italian architect Ettore Sottsass; and the opulent Beverly Hills House, by the most famous of the 1920s Mediterranean-style architects, George Washington Smith - with interiors that have been reworked recently by the avant-garde California architect Coy Howard.
