While enjoying your ModMansions Palm Springs vacation rentals, you will discover there is lots to do during Modernism Week.

From February 15th-25th, Modernism Week in Palm Springs will celebrate mid-century architecture and design. With more than 350 events, the goal of Modernism Week is to not only educate attendees on history and design, but to look toward a sustainable future of architecture.

Here are 4 ways to make the best of this exciting event:

1. Get Tickets to the Modernism Week Opening Night After Dark Party

February 15, 2018  from 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Treat yourself to a truly glamorous event on opening night. This exciting event will be held at the Indian Canyons Golf Resort, which was designed in 1962 by Donald Wexler and Richard Harrison. Soak up the mid-century decor in this decadent After Dark party, presented by Ferguson Bath, Kitchen, & Lighting Gallery. Featuring specialty cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, dancing, and music, this party will transport you back in time.

2. Take a Ride on the Premier Double Decker Architectural Bus Tour  

February 18, 2018 from 8:30 am - 4:30 pm

Open to all ages, this Double Decker Tour offers 2.5 hours of tour time. You will traverse Palm Springs, delighting in the architecture that makes this neighborhood so unique. Showcasing Mid-century Modern and Desert Spanish architecture, this tour also includes a view of Frank Sinatra's former residence, the Twin Palms Estate. 

3. Attend a free event on Modernism and Sustainability  

February 18, 2018 from 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

This free event, accessible to all ages, will feature a panel of experts in mid-century design. These include Frank Slesinski, Dominique Hargreaves, Maureen Gilmer, and John Goins. All of these panelists will discuss a unique and exciting local project that emphasizes sustainability. There will be a question and answer session afterwards.
