There are few cities on earth that tantalize the eye quite like Palm Springs. Cruising into this quirky city, via the bone-dry desert, it soon becomes clear that Palm Springs simply refuses to do bad buildings; whether it’s the high-impact housing of the rich and famous, or the mundane everyday buildings of finger-lickin’ drive-throughs, gas stations, banks or sci-fi-tastic convenience stores, everywhere the eye lands offers up a design masterclass.
