This year, in honor of Palm Springs Modernism Week, we feature films about that amazing city's Modernist architects - the hundreds of mid century houses that survive today.
The story of mid-century modern architect William F. Cody is told through the iconic buildings that he created and his impact on the architecture of Palm Springs. Revealing his conceptual designs starting in 1947 and onward into the 70s just before a devastating stroke ended his career. The documentary explores the art behind his structures and how his buildings are now considered masterpieces in the modern desert of Palm Springs.
Come early at 7pm and visit with Gwynn Thayer and Todd Kosmerick of NCSU Special Collections as they share some of the plans and photos from mid-century Modernist houses and buildings.
