Making my list a little longer for reasons to move West — Every year, Palm Springs hosts Modernism Week, highlighting tours of some of the dessert’s hottest architecture spots and home tours. This year’s gathering will commence the week of February 14th and gah, I wish I could be a part of it. One of the awesome tours you could join is The Frey House (top two photos), that’s nestled among the San Jacinto mountains. It’s designed by Albert Frey who spent years calculating the sun’s shadows over the dessert rocks before he chose the perfect spot for his home. The house is 800 square feet and incorporates the terrain inside the house! You can actually see, feel, and rest your coffee mug on parts of the rock! Frey’s vision was for the space to “disappear” into it’s surroundings, so that it wouldn’t intrude on nature. Want to see for yourself? You can reserve a ticket right here. Or just sit on your computer like me and geek out to photos. Just sayin’.
