About Us

Modernism Week, the only such event in the country, is an exciting 11-day celebration of mid-century modern design, architecture and culture. This design aesthetic, originated in the 1950s and 60s, was typified by clean, simple lines and celebrated elegant informality which came to define desert modernism.

In the winter of 2006, following the success of both the MODERNISM SHOW which had started in 2001 and the annual symposium organized by the ARCHITECTURE AND DESIGN COUNCIL of the PALM SPRINGS ART MUSEUM, a few local design and architecture aficionados created MODERNISM WEEK to showcase Palm Springs’ world-renowned mid-century modern architecture.

Among the members of the initial steering committee were representatives from the Palm Springs Preservation Foundation, the Palm Springs Modern Committee, the Palm Springs Historical Society, and the Architecture and Design Council of the Palm Springs Art Museum.
