From the mid-1950s through to the early 60s, George Alexander's construction company thrived in the Southern California post-war housing boom, and Alexander did particularly well in Palms Springs. where he built more than 2,000 homes during this decade.
Most of the homes they built were designed by architects Dan Palmer and William Krisel of Palmer & Krisel. These Palmer & Krisel designed, Alexander houses, with slanted, flat or butterfly roofs, exposed wood beam ceilings, expansive glass windows, and rectangular or freeform pools lead to an architectural movement known as Palm Springs Modernism. Other architects such as Stan Sackley, Albert Frey and Robson Chambers were also associated with this movement.
