Aluminaire, an historic 1931 case study house that architecture critic Paul Goldberger once referred to as one of “the pivotal works of modern architecture in America,” may have found a new home: Palm Springs, California. The town is former home of one of the house’s architects, Albert Frey (the other was A. Lawrence Kocher). Although it’ll be sad to see the Aluminaire go, we can take solace in the knowledge that it has found a good, loving home. The Aluminaire House will fit right in with Palm Springs’ already extensive collection of Modernist buildings.
