Palm Springs, California has the most bold modernist architecture, thanks to the Hollywood stars of the 1950's who built homes there. Australia, on the other hand, embraced the mid-century modern look to build practical homes. Architects like Robin Boyd and Harry Seidler were proponents of the International Modern Movement and its influence on Australia.
