When I told my twenty-something son that his parent and I would be road to Southern California to research a parable on mid-century fashionable architecture, he snickered, "How can they call that modern? It's so old-fashioned."

"How else would you set forth linear homes of glass, stone and steel?" I asked. "Whatever," he replied, dismissing the subject matter. And so, I drove southeastward quizzical whether the visualization homes of my youth, promoted next as the houses of tomorrow, were yesterday's account.

On accomplishment in Palm Springs, we curbed into the Movie Colony Hotel, formed by field of study innovator Albert Frey in 1935. We, in our 50s, were the oldest guests in attendance. Sweet revenge! Our son's coevals had revealed what he hadn't and we rapidly would, that mid-century modern-day building is as hot nowadays as when it was introduced, with a new colleagues of retro-focused X-gens embracing its frugal allure. Modern? You bet it is, and Palm Springs and Los Angeles are wherever the sunday-go-to-meeting examples can be recovered.

To the uninitiated, recent building seems to be one concept, but in fact it is layered near contrary styles: prairie, art deco, international, art moderne, margin vernacular, mid-century, googie, redbrick builder, prevailing builder, shed, and recent folk. All of these styles can be seen in California.

In any new quantity of the world, genre architecture is the odd release or is fired as woman simply anachronistic, but in Southern California - markedly in Palm Springs and Los Angeles - its examples are maintained, restored, freeze-dried and their exigency elevated to cultural place kudos. Support for modernism, there, is proven in inestimable distance.
