Here's a taste of the Royal Hawaiian Estates tour featuring artist Shag's (akaJosh Agle) tiki condo.
Architects Donald Wexler and Richard Harrison combined modernist ideas with Polynesian themes when they designed the Royal Hawaiian Estates in south Palm Springs. Built in 1960, the complex has 12 buildings with 40 units on 5 acres. Wooden tiki ornaments and other decorative details give the buildings and the grounds a tropical feel.
