Palm Springs

Palm Springs boasts so many standout works of modernist architecture there’s no surprise it’s been dubbed the ‘Mecca of Modernism’. This booming playground for the rich and famous during the 40’s, 50’s and 60’s became an ideal canvas for architects who sought the freedom to innovate and experiment with their craft. Elements of the stark yet stunning desert were inspiration that often found their way into the structures, the idea of harmony between landscape and the building remaining a consistent theme throughout the decades. Opulence and extravagance were less important as architects embraced and accentuated the wonder of the natural surroundings – sand, rock, mountains and sky. There is an impressive roster of architects who lived and/or worked in the Palm Springs area over the years, and across their work one can find features that remained constant to the desert modernist style. The following is a pictorial display of 6 themes that stand the test of time and continue to bear witness to the wonders of this desert oasis.
