Desert Modernism Heroes - Richard Neutra

Written by Katy Carrier

The Paul Kaplan Group is grateful for the architects who have helped shape the “Desert Modernism” movement in Palm Springs. 

Celebrated modernist architect Richard Neutra designed just three homes in the Palm Springs area, but each was unique and important in the advancement of Desert Modernism.

Kaufmann House by Richard Neutra

Neutra’s first project in the desert was the Grace Miller House, which was completed in 1937.  The small home was designed very deliberately with the needs of Miller in mind, with Miller and Neutra exchanging some 50 letters throughout 1936 and 1937 that outlined Miller’s habits and wants in great detail so that the home could be perfectly

The Story Behind The Architecture

At the Paul Kaplan Group in Palm Springs, we not only have a passion for real estate, but also the history of architecture and design in Palm Springs and beyond. 

One of our favorite spots in Palm Springs is the Palm Springs Art Museum's Architecture and Design Center, Edwards Harris Pavilion. The Architecture and Design Center, or “A+D Center,” is located in downtown Palm Springs in the historic 1961 Santa Fe Savings & Loan Building, which was purchased by the Palm Springs Art Museum from a real estate developer about five years ago. The building, originally designed by renowned architect E. Stewart Williams, underwent renovations led by the firm of Marmol Radziner to transform the former bank into the museum.

Desert Modernism Heroes - Albert Frey

by:  Katy Carrier

The Paul Kaplan Group is grateful for architects like Albert Frey, FAIA, who have helped shape the “Desert Modernism” movement in Palm Springs.

Frey grew up encouraged to study architecture and did so at Winterthur’s Institute of Technology in Winterthur, Switzerland, completing his architectural degree in 1924 and subsequently beginning to practice throughout Europe. The budding architect quickly built a name for himself, landing roles at Eggericz and Verwilghen in Brussels and Le Corbusier’s atelier in Paris. Despite succeeding in these European

Desert Modernism Heroes - John Lautner

The Paul Kaplan Group is grateful for the architects who have helped shape the “Desert Modernism” movement in Palm Springs. One such architect, John Lautner, FAIA, (1911-1994) got his start as an apprentice of Frank Lloyd Wright and went on to become one of the most influential architects in the world, with a career spanning nearly six decades.
