Since the 1920’s, visionary modernist architects have designed sleek, modern homes that have embraced the desert environment. Notable for its use of glass, clean lines, natural and manufactured resources and indoor/outdoor spaces, Desert Modernism evoked a lifestyle of simple elegance and informality. Influenced by the dictates of desert living and the intense climate, the style grew out of the architects and designer's adaptive use of inventive materials, modern construction techniques, new (post-war) technologies...and served an enthusiastic and willing clientele.” (www.visitpalmsprings.com) Some popular and inspiring architectural wonders of Palm Springs include the Bob and Dolores Hope House, Edris House, Kaufmann House, Twin Palms Estates Alexanders, and Elvis’ Honeymooon Hideaway.
