Sunny Modernism

By February 21, 2013

Follow me on:

What does midcentury Modernism look like? Sunnylands, the contemporary style winter home of publisher, philanthropist, and ambassador Walter Annenberg has been the talk of Modernism Week in Palm Springs, California. A bridge crosses stream to golf course overlooking the southern California mountains Architect A. Quincy Jones' 25,000-square-foot design is set within 200 acres of Rancho Mirage desert, beneath the craggy mountains of southern California. From 1966 until 2009, kings, queens, presidents, first ladies, and Hollywood royalty walked through the rambling estate, and now you can, too. Modernism Week may be over, but Sunnylands is open to the public 10 months a year—and Sunnylands' Landscape Architecture is absolutely free.
