Midcentury Modern Icons & their Architects
Tour begins at Union Bank, on the SE corner of Indian Canyon Drive and Ramon Road.
See the very best examples of mid-century modern architecture as we walk along the town’s main thoroughfare for banking and retail businesses. Learn how this stark yet beautiful landscape captured the imagination of a young and talented group of Desert Modern architects—the movers and shakers who shaped Palm Springs during the post-World War II boom and who created a body of internationally-recognized work during the heyday of the 1950s and ‘60s. These buildings continue to draw people to Palm Springs from all over the world to admire and appreciate their innovative designs in our unique desert setting.
