It has begun! Modernism Week in Palm Springs! We love this time of year! Modern Misting Systems and Modern Outdoor Spaces enjoy the fun and festive events surrounding this time in our valley. There are so many sights to see and things to do. Home tours, trailer tours meeting the famous architects. You can purchase tickets all week long. Don’t let the rain scare you away.
Going on tours is a wonderful way to indulge in Modernism Week. Seeing sites like The Dinah Shore house, by Donald Wexler, The Frank Sinatra “Twin Palms Estate”, by E. Stewart Williams, the Abernathy House, by William Cody and Elvis’ Honeymoon Hideaway, by William Krisel are only a few of the amazing architectural wonders created in our own back yard. You could see works by other famous architects like Frank Lloyd Wright, Richard Neutra, John Lautner and Alan Hess. One of our most favorite, however, is the designer of the Palm Springs City Hall and the Tramway gas station, Mr. Albert Frey. His use of architecture for unique shade designs really gets our creative juices flowing.
There’s so much to do, and so much to see! Monday, we took our kids to a few of the Desert X sites. Our favorite so far is the Pia Camil’s Lover’s Rainbow.
Have a fun week and enjoy the sights. If you get inspired and feel like adding some beautiful shading, unique coloring or some modern cooling, don’t hesitate to look up Modern Outdoor Spaces to assist you in your new adventure! Give us a call 760-345-9429.
