Palm Springs Modernism Week

Thanks to the wonderful Vintage Seekers, I was introduced to Palm Springs Modernism Week which is actually 80 events crammed in to 11 days and ends on Sunday. 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.

Modernism Week is an exciting celebration of mid-century modern design, architecture and culture in the good ol’ USA. This design aesthetic, originated in the 50s and 60s, was typified by clean, simple lines and celebrated elegant informality which came to define desert modernism.

A date to put in to my diary for next year… I could do with some sun!
