The Renaissance And Evolution Of Desert Modern Housing
"he renaissance of Modernist housing, which cognoscenti like to call Desert Modern, reflects several factors. The growing population of year-round residents has kept up the demand for new housing in a city that historically has been a winter resort. And many design-conscious buyers are seeking an alternative to the Spanish and Mediterranean homes blanketing much of Southern California... An even greater contrast, the new Desert Modern housing is high-density and urban, unlike the suburban Alexander tracts. Nearly all the older housing is single-story and low-lying, emphasizing the horizontal."
