#102/Modernism Week Design: Joel Turkel + Anthony Poon + Jacques Caussin

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!

Today USModernist welcomes two California architects building new Modernist houses and one expert sharing how Modernism started:  Joel Turkel founded Turkel Design and created NextHouse, a series of prefab modern homes still marketed by the fine folks at Deck House. In 2014, in an exclusive collaboration with Dwell Magazine, Joel launched the Axiom Series, a line of modern houses that combine sleek modern design with all the benefits of prefab construction. Now he lives in one! 

Anthony Poon is an architect, concert pianist, artist, and author. He created new ways to build and promote Modernist home developments while maintaining design integrity and construction quality. His entertaining talk at Modernism Week was about architects in popular culture - TV and movies.  There are many more than you might think! 

Wrapping up, we talk with Jacques Caussin, associated with Modernism Week from the very beginning and this year’s speaker on how Modernism got started and made itself popular in the US.
