The Paul Kaplan Group celebrates the architects of the Desert Modernism movement.
Palm Springs, our desert resort city here in California, became a hotbed of Mid-century architecture in the 1950s and 1960s. The city's sunny weather and modernist aesthetic attracted some of the most famous architects of the era.
Palm Springs was home to many key mid-century architects. Below is a list of some of the key architects that shaped mid-century design and Desert Modernism. These architects helped define Palm Springs during the mid-century era and created what is often coined, "Desert Modernism".
Palm Springs' desert modernism is a style of architecture that emerged in the mid-20th century and was influenced by the unique desert environment in Southern California. this design style is characterized by clean lines, geometric shapes, and the use of natural materials such as stone, wood and glass.
These architects were instrumental in shaping the style of desert Modernism in Palm Springs. They designed iconic buildings and homes that embodied the clean lines, simplicity and indoor-outdoor living that are the hallmarks of Midcentury design. The result is a style that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing and has come to define the modernist movement in architecture.
Their work had a profound influence on architecture and design around the world and continues to be celebrated today through preservation efforts and architectural tours of Palm Springs, like Modernism Week.
