Modernism flourished in Palm Springs after World War 2 due to several factors. The city was newly booming as a weekend getaway from Los Angeles. A high concentration of architects and designers made their way here. New materials were being developed and used for commercial purposes. These materials were ideally suited for the extreme conditions of the desert. Thus the open air design, signature to Mid-century Modernism was born.
