Palm Springs has plenty to offer fans of architecture, but knowing where to go and what to see can be a challenge On this personally guided virtual tour you can sit back and relax as Rick Evans, takes you through the city’s diverse neighborhoods, reveal their many treasures and tell their fascinating stories in a relaxed conversational setting.
The tour includes the history of Palm Springs, the people who lived, worked and vacationed here, the Hollywood stars who played and built homes here and the architects, builders and designers who, from the late 1930s through the early 1970s, developed the “desert modernism” style for which Palm Springs has become famous.
You’ll see distinctive homes by noted architects, celebrity hideaways, familiar film locations, revolutionary modern tract developments, beautifully preserved commercial buildings and civic buildings that influenced public architecture throughout the world – plus a variety of notable older and newer structures that provide context and character to the city’s eclectic built environment.
