Palm Springs Architecture

Palm Springs Architecture refers to the distinctive style of modernist architecture that emerged in the mid-20th century in the Palm Springs area of Southern California. Characterized by clean lines, simple shapes, and an emphasis on indoor-outdoor living, Palm Springs architecture is an iconic representation of the mid-century modern design. The architecture was heavily influenced by the desert environment, with architects using natural materials such as stone, wood, and glass to create structures that complemented the landscape. Large windows and sliding glass doors allowed for a seamless transition between indoor and outdoor spaces, while flat roofs and wide overhangs provided shade and protection from the sun.
