Palm Springs Modernism Week February 2012

Went to Palm Springs at the tail end of Modernism Week with my friend Tim. Got to check out Lautner’s famous Elrod House (1968), thanks to the Los Angeles Conservancy. The James Bond movie Diamonds Are Forever was filmed there! We also toured some of the city’s best hotels (The Parker is so incredible!), checked out a pre-fab housing showcase (furniture was way more impressive than the homes), and met some dinosaurs in Cabazon on the way home.

1-12 Elrod House, 13-20 Parker Hotel, 21-22 Ace Hotel, 23-24 Saguaro Hotel, 25-27 Pre-fab Showcase, 28-30 Cabazon Dinosaurs.
