Architectural tourism in Palm Springs has become such a major economic engine that we believe this App will be enormously popular with both visitors and local residents seeking to learn about Palm Springs’ enviable cache of mid-century modern architecture.
Palm Springs, CA (PRWEB) July 24, 2012
The Palm Springs Modern Committee (PS ModCom) in collaboration with Palm Springs Life magazine will launch a multi-platform electronic application, Palm Springs Modern: Mid-Century Architecture Tours, (App), which will be available to the public for download beginning September, 2012. The Palm Springs Modern: Mid-Century Architecture Tours App will be available for purchase from the App Store for iPhone and iPad and from the Android Market.
The $5.99 Palm Springs Modern: Mid-Century Architecture Tours App is in a HD – 720p format and features three tours of over 80 architecturally significant modern homes and commercial buildings throughout the greater Palm Springs area. The App will also present in-depth profiles of 12 leading Modern architects whose contributions have shaped the architectural landscape of Palm Springs. “Architectural tourism in Palm Springs has become such a major economic engine that we believe this App will be enormously popular with both visitors and local residents seeking to learn about Palm Springs’ enviable cache of mid-century modern architecture,” said Chris Menrad, PS ModCom president.
The App is authored by Modernism expert and preservationist Robert Imber, operator of Palm Springs Modern Tours; with photography by Julius Shulman, Dan Chavkin and others; and narration by architectural historian Peter Moruzzi, PS ModCom founder and writer/ producer of the documentary Desert Holiday and author of the book Palm Springs Holiday. The App features tours of select properties which are enhanced by contemporary high quality DVD video.
The Palm Springs Modern: Mid-Century Architecture Tours App will be launched with a 12-month large-scale regional, national and international promotional campaign that will include a robust public relations campaign.
Founded in 1999, the Palm Springs Modern Committee is a nonprofit forum for maintaining and promoting the heritage of modern architecture and design in Palm Springs and the entire Coachella Valley. For additional information about PS ModCom, please visit: http://www.psmodcom.org
