Mecca of Modernism

Mecca of Modernism

A Mid-century must see (and in Palm Springs there are countless) of Modernism Week is the Kaufmann House. Arguably the most famous modernist home in the desert. Imagine having Fallingwater as your everyday residence and then commissioning this as your vacation home. Well Mr. K did just that with the help of Richard Neutra. The Julius Shulman treatment, the iconic ‘Poolside Gossip’ photo, and Barry Manilow as a previous owner all add to the pedigree… if only that pool could talk!
