Desert Modernism design are homes that have a lot  of glass, clean lines,  and contemporary  features while focusing  on outdoor/indoor living to take advantage of the fabulous desert weather   The style grew out of the architects use of inventive materials, modern construction techniques, new technologies ..Which today includes Prefab homes, Modular Homes and Shipping Container Homes – all which  have elements of Desert Modernism  such as contemporary designs with modern construction techniques that are not only cost effective , but are much faster to build and have less impact on the environment and neighborhoods.

A lot of the old homes have been restored to their original glory and are featured in the annual Modernism Week which celebrates the midcentury modern designs in Palm Springs.

Today’s architects are utilizing the same features of the desert to build new classic homes with new construction methods that will become part of Modernism Week tours for the next Century.
