Modernism Week 2018 preview
Raymond Loewy commissioned architect Albert Frey to design his Palm Springs home in 1946 on a rocky site overlooking Palm Springs. It was here that the industrial designer, developed the concepts of Air Force One, the Studebaker Avanti automobile, and the Exxon logo. Loewy influenced the design of transportation across America including the Greyhound bus and even NASA’s space capsules, as well as household items. As well as tours of the house, Modernism week presents a lecture titled ‘Raymond Loewy, Industrial Designer: What a Life!!’ at the Annenberg Theatre, which will unpack Loewy’s career and influence.
