A master-planned community in the spectacular desert of Southern California, BOOM changes America’s idea of Twenty-First Century urban life. Pedestrian-oriented, culture-driven, designed to inspire residents to better themselves and others, BOOM radically alters how we think about home, community and wellness.
BOOM is a new, master-planned community rising in the spectacular desert surrounding Palm Springs. At a cost of over $250 million, it changes America’s idea of urban life. The brainchild of ten international architects, BOOM was conceived for the gay community but readily extends its embrace to all. BOOM is pedestrian-oriented, culture-driven, and designed to inspire its residents to better themselves and others.
The architects range from the well-known – Diller Scofidio + Renfro in New York – to such emerging stars as the Berlin-based Juergen Mayer H. Coordinating the project is Matthias Hollwich, of Hollwich Kushner in New York.
