Palm Springs has a huge architecture event called Modernism Week
every February. It’s a fascinating array of architecture, lectures,
parties, tours, exhibits, and the occasional plastic surgery gone
awry. Host George Smart was there earlier this year talking
with nearly all the speakers, authors, and special guests who make
the week (actually 11 days) a blast!
Authors Michael Stern and Alan Hess join us poolside at the swanky Hotel Skylark to discuss their new book: Hollywood Modern: Houses of the Stars. They uniquely capture the glamour of each star and how their personality, even their appearance, matches the house they chose. From the Johnny Carson House in Malibu to the ultramodern Gary Cooper House in Holmby Hills, these houses curate our brains just like the movies do. Later on, we welcome back the delightful celebrity expert Lindsay Blake, creator of the hugely popular movie location blog Iamnotastalker. Spoiler alert: she’s quite the stalker!
