Eames House – Case Study #8

Eames BrothersEames Brothers

It looks like a steel box painted by Mondrian, but it’s actually a modern house constructed entirely out of pre-fabricated materials.  Charles and Ray Eames originally designed the house for John Entenza’s Case Study program.  They were so impressed with their own handiwork that they also lived in the house from 1949 until the mid-80’s.

Even though the husband and wife design team is best known for their furniture and for their experimental film “Power of 10” (watch here), this house put them on the architectural map as leaders of the modern style.  For more about this house, check here:  http://www.eamesfoundation.org/
