Palm Springs Modernism Week
Modernism Week is a celebration of mid-century modern design, architecture and culture in the Palm Springs area. This design aesthetic, originated in the 1950s and 60s, was typified by clean, simple lines and celebrated elegant informality which came to define desert modernism.
In the winter of 2006, a few local design and architecture aficionados created Modernism Week to showcase Palm Springs' world-renowned mid-century modern architecture. It has since expanded into a 10-day period filled with a variety of events, including architecture tours, films, lectures, an architecture symposium, educational events as well as chic and fun parties in cool mid-century modern homes. The 6th Annual Palm Springs Modernism Week will take place February 17-27, 2011.
