A guide to Modernism Week, Palm Springs

There is more to Palm Springs than smoking medical marijuana and suffering through mediocre indie start-ups at Coachella. Design savvys have been flocking to the desert for Modernism Week, now in its 10th year, to preview the latest in midcentury architecture and contemporary interiors.
