We seek to engage the youngest students though elementary school programs and reward preservation and architecture-minded graduating high school students with scholarships. PS ModCom also produces educational exhibits each year at the Palm Springs Modernism Show & Sale, as well as the Palm Springs Library Center, highlight desert modern architects’ work or currently endangered buildings.
PS ModCom has worked with the teachers and students at St. Theresa School since 2014, developing a new curriculum around architecture and preservation for grades 4 through 8.
Each February, PS ModCom produces a free, self-guided exhibition at the Palm Springs Central Library themed on an architect of historical significance.

For a “Palm Springs Modernism 101” introduction to the architects who shaped the area, PS ModCom has put together a selection of short bios and slideshows. For more in-depth information on these architects and more, consider buying the Modern Tour App and taking yourself on a self-guided tour of Palm Springs (even from your armchair at home).
