Touring The Elrod House

EH_Postcard

I want to do this really, really badly: the MAK Center is hosting a first come, first served Elrod House Tour as a part of Palm Springs Modernism week. There will be five (intimate) tours. Check out some more information on it after the jump!

“Come share in this unique opportunity to experience John Lautner’s masterwork, The Elrod House. Commissioned by interior designer Arthur Elrod in 1968, the house is featured in numerous books, magazines, museum exhibitions, and appeared in the classic 1971 James Bond movie, Diamonds Are Forever. This iconic home, perched at the very tip of the Southridge enclave, is visible from throughout Palm Springs. Organic shapes, monumental construction and world class design create an extraordinary experience of space that Lautner described as “timeless” architecture.”
