Are you an avid fan of all things mid-century? Ever been to Palm Springs? If not, you're missing the mecca of all things mid-century modern. More specifically, you're missing the monumental mid-century architecture in Palm Springs, with so many marvels to behold it's breath-taking. So what are you waiting for, mid-century enthusiasts? Pack your bags and head to Palm Springs.

The sheer number of mid-century buildings will make your head spin, but why not start with one of the stars: Richard Neutra's beautifully restored Kaufmann house. It's a must see for any mid-century modern enthusiast. The iconic Kaufmann Desert House is considered one of the top architectural monuments in North America. Designed in 1946, for the same family as commission the Falling Water House by Frank Loyd Wright (also considered a top architectural destination), this brilliant home was created to both blend with and offset its desert environment. With its stark outlines, walls of windows, use of locally quarried stone and classic Neutra design, it stands as a star example of mid-century architecture in Palm Springs.

The Kaufmann Desert House, as well as many other mid-century marvels, are probably best explored by taking a tour that caters to mid-century enthusiasts, such as the one offered by Palm Springs Modern Tours. Palm Springs offer the most prolific and well-preserved examples of modernism architecture in the United States, so deciding what to see can be confusing. Tours such as these take the guess-work out of it and offer access to lesser known, but equally important, examples of mid-century architecture in Palm Springs.
