Vista Las Palmas

Desert Modernism

The mountains and desert sands of California’s Coachella Valley inspired a regional version of Mid-Century Modern architecture.  Features include glass, extended overhangs, natural and man made materials and the extension of the inside spaces to the outside.  Remarkably many of the houses have been preserved.  Mid-week of our cycling adventures included a tour through the surrounding neighbourhoods.
