mad for mod

The first time I visited the modernism paradise that is Palm Springs, I felt like I’d stepped back in time. Everywhere I looked there was something to be enchanted by—be it the then-standing “Forever Marilyn” Monroe statue, the shops filled with vintage wares or the retro rooflines. My love affair with this California desert town has only grown over the years. The feeling seeps in just a little bit deeper with every opportunity to learn about its vibrant history, step into incredible houses and meet passionate homeowners. I’m not the only one who feels this way about Palm Springs. People from across the country and around the world flock to the desert to get a peek at this design oasis. Luckily for you, the spring issue of Atomic Ranch is your…

NEARLY EVERY DAY, WE READ ABOUT THE DESTRUCTION OF ANOTHER MODERNIST HOUSE IN AMERICA. We moan for a few days then move on. The grief is brief—unless it is a house in your hometown, perhaps one your family formerly owned, or one you played in as a child or one you drove by and admired for decades. Perhaps you have searched for a list of them online. It’s likely that you didn’t find much, as most modernist houses by local and largely unsung architects don’t get much attention. Some, the most famous, get press when they’re demolished. As for the rest, without knowing where they are, how can anyone try to save the good ones? I grew up in Raleigh, North Carolina, a state capitol that, in 1961, had about 94,000…

LOOKING TO DO A CAREFUL RENOVATION ON THEIR 1962 JOSEPH EICHLERBUILT HOME in San Rafael, California, homeowners Joe West, a mechanical engineer, and Mark Kemler, a lawyer, turned to Karen Nepacena of Destination Eichler.
