An Iconic Example of Mid-Century Modern Architecture
Dubbed “The House of Tomorrow” by Look magazine in 1962, this Palm Springs landmark is an iconic example of Mid-Century Modern architecture. Designed in four perfect circles, it was built out of glass and stone in order to echo the natural landscape. In 1967, the house gained international fame when Elvis and Priscilla moved in after their Vegas elopement. Rechristened the “Elvis Honeymoon Hideaway,” it has been restored to its 1960s glory (think leopard-print walls, the couple’s pink canopy bed and an impressive collection of memorabilia). A must-see for modern architecture buffs and Elvis enthusiasts alike, this retro wonderland is open daily for impersonator-guided tours by appointment.
