The modernism design aesthetic originated in the 1940s, ’50s, and’60s, and was put on the map by communities like Palm Springs, where casual elegance was the lifestyle. It is typified by clean, simple lines and came to be closely identified with desert living.

Modernism Week is filled with a variety of events including architectural tours, films, lectures, an architectural symposium, educational events, and parties in cool mid-century modern homes. For a full schedule of events and pricing, visit the website and click on the Events tab.

Funds raised by the tours and special events go toward the Modernism Week scholarship fund for local high school students continuing their college education in a design field.
