Palm Springs Modernism Week is a celebration of mid-century modern architecture and design. If you don’t know what modernism entails, it can be defined as a style of the arts that contains techniques and ideas that have not been seen before in history. The Palm Springs area has a large concentration of mid-century modern aesthetic seen in artwork, literature, furniture design and residential & commercial buildings. Palm Springs Modernism Week brings together experts and enthusiasts who share their excitement and knowledge in unique workshops, lectures, tours and parties. Plan a trip to Palm Springs from February 16-26, 2017 to experience this annual tribute to the town’s treasured mid-century modern influence.

About Modernism Week

Modernism week was established in 2006 and has since hosted various events displaying the originality and beauty of modern, mid-century Palm Springs architecture to the world.
