Palm Springs: A Modernist Paradise
Midcentury modern design and architecture are hotter than ever and Palm Springs has the largest concentration of this style of architecture anywhere in the world. Since Julius Shulman's seminal publication on Palm Springs in the 1950s, the architectural and design community has embraced the city. Several books have followed but none of them give an overview that is up-to-date. Tim Street-Porter will not only include the elegant modernist images of Palm Springs architecture but also today's interior restorations of stellar examples by such top interior designers as Michael Smith and Martyn Lawrence Bullard.This luxurious tome paying homage to the seminal midcentury modernism architecture of Palm Springs showcases examples of this glamorous style, including historic jet-set homes designed by such talents as Neutra, Frey, Lautner, and others, as well as private residences that have been restored by leading tastemakers.
