Palm Springs is noted for it’s many examples of mid-century modern architecture that arrived during the 1950’s. It was a reflection of a significant design that roughly began in 1933 with the International and Bauhus modern movement that portrayed simplicity and nature in its structure. It was during this time that modernism was born.
Both function and form were important in creating designs during this era. Furniture found itself simple, natural and functional in the works of Arne Jacobsen but most notably in George Nelson’s who is credited as one of the founders of American modernism.
Well known mid-century modern buildings dot the Palm Springs landscape; Albert Frey’s Palm Springs City Hall, Richard Nuetra’s Kaufmann house, Donald Wexler’s Dinah Shore home, and Frank Lloyd Wright’s Oasis Hotel are just a few that make up the modern movement.
