Modernism Week Reads

Modernism Week is upon us, and we’re California dreaming’ over the annual celebration of mid-century architecture and design in Palm Springs. Lucky for us, two books were just released giving us a taste of the modern mecca.



A pioneer of mid-century modernism, William Krisel’s influence has had an immeasurable impact on architecture and design. William Krisel’s Palm Springs: The Language of Modernism is the first major monograph chronicling the work and architectural philosophy of Krisel and features examples and insights from his own papers. Krisel’s architectural drawings and renderings, as well as many archival photographs, highlight examples of his custom homes, mass-produced housing, and recreational facilities in Palm Springs and rest of the Coachella Valley. If you’re attending Modernism Week, be sure to attend Sunday’s book launch, taking place, naturally, in a Krisel-designed home.




Daniel Chavkin is a Palm Springs photographer whose passion is for mid-century modern architecture―and especially the desert modernism of Palm Springs. In this just-released book, Unseen Midcentury Desert Modern, Chavkin showcases dozens of gems of modernist design hidden away in and around Palm Springs. The result is this rich photographic collection of largely unseen examples of desert modern architecture. Many of the buildings shown herein are not easily accessible by, or in some cases completely off-limits to, the general public, so the photographs in this book may be the only opportunity for midcentury aficionados to ever see some of these buildings.
