Elizabeth Edwards Harris owner of the famed Kaufmann house in Palm Springs.
“Our cultural identity is tied to some of these places,” says Harris, also vice president of the board of trustees of the California Preservation Foundation and owner of the Kaufmann House. “You can only go so far before you diminish your visual identity to the point where people say Palm Springs isn’t modernist anymore.”
Harris and Edwards are fighting a high-rise that would obscure a downtown landmark. Developer John Wessman says new construction is necessary to bring new economic growth to the city.
