Architects of The Desert

Learn the history of Coachella Valley architecture.

Palm Springs is renowned for its diverse array of architectural styles, from the sleek lines of mid-century modern and contemporary designs to the warm textures of Spanish Revival, Spanish Colonial, Early Californian, Ranch-style homes, and luxurious country club estates. This eclectic mix is the work of legendary mid-century modern architects who captured the spirit of modernist design while harmoniously blending it with the desert's natural beauty.

The hallmark features of mid-century architecture – clean, simple lines, open floor plans, and large windows that blur the boundary between indoors and outdoors – have redefined the way we live and interact with our environment. Celebrated architects such as Donald Wexler, William Krisel, Albert Frey, E. Stewart Williams, Richard Neutra, Buff and Hensman, John Lautner, Hugh Kaptur, and William F. Cody used Palm Springs as their canvas, elevating mid-century modern design to create the iconic Desert Modernism style. Palm Springs proudly houses the most extensive collection of mid-century homes in the United States.
