I wanted to assemble a couple of photos from my favourite architectural era, the American Modernism, also called Desert Modernism. It is a great assimiliation of modern building and landscape, something that’s both aesthetic and good for the nature and the surroundings. You can recognize this style by its use of glass, clean lines and indoor/outdoor spaces, Desert Modernism evoked a lifestyle of simple elegance and informality.
I wish I could live in one of these houses…
