Palm Springs Mid-century Modern by Dolly Faibyshev

Palm Springs Mid-century Modern” by a New York based photographer Dolly Faibyshev features a stunning photographic collection of mid century modern architecture in Palm Springs, California. The book includes 178 color and black/white photos of residential, municipal, and commercial buildings designed by mid century modern architects including Donald Wexler, E. Stewart Williams, William Krisel, Albert Frey, William F. Cody, and Richard Neutra.

Palm Springs Mid-century Modern

The book includes images of many familiar/iconic structures of Palm Springs such as the Kaufmann House, Frey House II, Tramway Gas Station, House of Tomorrow, etc. as well as many other hidden gems that are probably only known to the locals, Palm Springs architecture experts or frequent visitors.

While some photos are identified in captions (these sites also are mentioned at the end of the book with location information), many photos do not include any information. I have visited Palm Springs, but I am far from being an expert. With my lack of knowledge, I could not identify many of the residential buildings in this book. However, I truly enjoyed these photos of unidentified structures, because these were the buildings I did not get to see while visiting Palm Springs.

Color or black/white, the images in this book are crisp and stunning. Even though these images were taken at present times, they have a “vintage feel” to them. Ms. Faibyshev also did a great job presenting distinctive architectural features of mid century modern buildings of Palm Springs in all of her images in this book. This book will be a treasure for any mid century modern enthusiast.
