If you love 20th-century design, get thee to Palm Springs, which is in the midst of Modernism Week, a nine-day celebration of mid-century modern architecture that ends Saturday. Today, The Desert Sun highlights The Frey House II—the second home designed and lived in by architect Albert Frey—which is open today for public tours. The 1,200-square-foot steel, concrete and glass 1964 home is built into the side of the San Jacinto Mountains and has features that include a car-sized boulder in the living room and Philippine mahogany furniture built into the structure. Frey was also the designer of the famous Palm Springs gas station/visitor's center and Palm Springs City Hall, and worked with Swiss master Le Corbusier. [The Desert Sun]
