The 10 Hippest Cities in America By Gogobot || 1 March, 2016
"There is no universal definition of “hip.” For some, it’s hipster — that ironic cool that has been perfected by the likes of Brooklyn and Portland. For others, it’s trendy and fashion forward, showing off the latest, chicest clubs, restaurants, and boutiques, a la Miami or LA. And while big cities are often known for being hip, smaller cities get passed over, but that shouldn’t be the case. To find the 10 hippest mid-sized cities, we grabbed the U.S. cities with ranks #100-900 by population according to census data and sorted them by the preferences of our Trendsters Tribe. They’re smaller, sure, but each celebrate cool in their own unique way. #1 is Palm Springs"

At home with Elvis and Sinatra: the modernist superpads of Palm Springs
By Oliver Wainwright The Guardian
"These dazzlingly space-age homes are just two of the architectural jewels that are liberally scattered throughout Palm Springs, a desert outpost that became an unlikely incubator for experimental modernist architecture in the 1950s and 60s, when it took off as a playground for the Hollywood Rat Pack. From Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin, to Liberace and Elvis, each demanded a house better than the next – creating an outdoor museum of midcentury design, which now attracts thousands of pilgrims to the annual Modernism Week in February, when many of the properties are open for rare tours."
