Modernism Week is an exciting 11-day celebration of mid-century modern design, architecture and culture in Palm Springs, California. This design aesthetic originated in the 1940s, 50s, and 60s, and was typified by clean, simple lines which came to define desert modernism. Modernism Week is filled with a variety of events including architectural tours, films, lectures, an architectural symposium, educational events, and chic, fun parties in cool mid-century modern homes.\n\nIn October, Modernism Week hosts their Fall Preview. A “mini-Modernism Week” to kick-off the active social and recreational season in Palm Springs. Tours, lectures, parties and more!
