Desert Modernism

My head is spinning at these gorgeous photos of the Loewy Palm Spring House and the rest of Albert Frey's work. We are forever designing our home and looking for ideas. Seeing these homes is like looking at paradise. I love the simple materials used and how he ties the home into it's natural surroundings. What would he do with all of our field stone? I'm going to have to get a book on Desert Modernism architecture, it is so breathtaking.

  1. Albert Frey was a genius at many things, especially incorporating the natural environment. Also check out the use of metal on the facades of his homes -- very much before his time. His houses look contemporary on the pages of Dwell.
