Just in time for Father's Day, we've got an amazing new giveaway! We've teamed up with architectural photographer Jake Holt to give away a print of Holt's photo of the iconic Mid-Century Edris House in Palm Springs. The print measures 16x24 and is a statement piece on any wall.
The iconic Edris House was built in 1954 for Marjorie and William Edris and designed by renowned Palm Springs modernist architect, E. Stewart Williams. With its stone walls, the Edris House rises organically from the desert's rocky terrain and is a classic example of desert modernism.
To enter the giveaway, all you need to do is visit Instagram and follow @struktrstudios and @jakeholt.
Hurry, the winner will be selected 6/9/16!
Asmara, Eritrea, a city in the Horn of Africa, is an unlikely city filled with streamline moderne and rationalist buildings. The city was developed by Fascists -- no, not Il Duce 2016 Donald Trump -- but those other Italian Fascists. Now one such structure in Asmara, the Fiat Tagliero, a striking 1930s gas station is seeking UNESCO World Heritage Site status, notes Curbed.
UNESCO's aim is cultural conservation through the recognition and preservation of buildings, cities, forests, monuments, and other world sites. If made a World Heritage Site, Fiat Tagliero, will become an interest of the international community. The site will be preserved and protected with the help of funds from the World Heritage Fund. And the city of Asmara, by way of its Fiat Tagiliero, will be recognized as a fundamental piece of the 20th century movement of Modernist architecture.
