Mid-Century Modern Freak

Atomic. Futurist. Populuxe. Googie. Modernist. Vintage Pop Culture.

Renown modernist architect, Albert Frey, built his own home, Frey House I, at 1150 Paseo El Mirador Palm Springs, CA in 1941, starting with a 3-bedroom nucleus that he hoped could be a prototype for mass-produced homes. Built out of very low-cost industrial materials, it came in at $6 per square foot, low even then. An original proponent of multiple-use space, his dining room table hung from the ceiling on clotheslines. The iconic architectural photographer, Julius Shulman, wrote about the Frey House I, “The aluminum siding and ceiling reflected the sun, while the interior wood panelling provided a feeling of warm refinement”.
