WILLIAM (BILL) KRISEL, AIA (1924-2017)

It's pronounced cry-zul!


Krisel was born in Shanghai, China to parents who worked for the US State Department. He moved with his American parents to Beverly Hills CA in 1937 and graduated from Beverly Hills HS. After serving in WWII, he graduated with honors in 1949 from the University of Southern California in Architecture. He worked for architects Paul Lazslo and Victor Gruen and became an associate in Dan Saxon Palmer's (aka Dan Weissinger's) architectural office. In 1950 Krisel was made partner in what became the Palmer and Krisel firm, with offices in Schindler's Falk Apartments. They designed more than 30,000 homes throughout California. 

Palmer and Krisel helped to nearly double the size of Palm Springs by building 2,500 tract homes, many of which still exist. Krisel is best known for Modernist developments created for the Alexander Company, one of the first Modernist builders in the US. Beginning in 1953 in Palm Springs, Krisel designed large communities in Los Angeles, San Diego, Las Vegas, Florida and Arizona. By 1957 he was working for 7 of the 10 largest home builders in the country. Krisel was a licensed landscape architect since 1954. Palmer and Krisel split around 1966. In 1969, Krisel formed a new partnership with Abraham Shapiro which lasted until 1979, after which Krisel practiced solo. The Getty Research Institute houses the Krisel archives.
