Architecture: Eames Case Study House
Charles and Ray Eames are my absolute favorite designers. This husband and wife team together created beautiful designs and affordable furniture for the masses. Their designs were modern for the time and have become modern classics since. They built this home in 1949 as part of a case study program. This house and their architecture incorporated materials that were traditionally used in commercial buildings which was unique for the time. This process cut down on price and allowed for larger expansion and open spaces. Check out the eames office which is now based in this house for their work and more information.
