Palm Springs : A Modernist Paradise, Hardback Book

Palm Springs : A Modernist Paradise Hardback


Since Gary Cooper built one of the first modernist houses in Palm Springs in the 1930s, this desert oasis has entranced Hollywood.

A mecca for the international jet set that lured Frank Sinatra, Walter Annenberg, and others, Palm Springs came into its own architecturally as a haven for visionary modernists such as Richard Neutra, who were practicing the International Style in Los Angeles.

The architectural legacy remains unsurpassed for its originality and influence, and recently many of the city s modernist residential treasures have been restored. In original new photography, Palm Springs captures the allure of this famed modernist destination.

The book profiles outstanding examples such as the Annenberg Estate, the Ford House, and the Kaufmann House, shown in their splendour, as well as today s restorations by top interior designers such as Martyn Lawrence Bullard and fashion designer Trina Turk.

A resource section provides modernist furnishing stores and other points of interest.
