I thought the neighborhood in Billie Eilish’s “Bad Guy” video was in Palm Springs.
Had to be.
Turns out the location was Balboa Heights which is a part of the greater San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles.
The most featured home is an Eichler. That architect I do recognize as Joseph Eichler who in fact populated Palm Springs with many of its best mid-century modern home designs. Do I get a pass?
Eichler’s work was so significant to Palm Springs, and the lust for money so great now among home builders, that “new” Eichler homes are being built today.
I’m not sure how Eichler would feel about that. Or Billie’s video. I feel Eichler and the video are both great.
