Résumé

Charles and Ray Eames, a husband-and-wife partnership, were among the most innovative and broad-based of American designers. Known primarily for furniture design and their explorations of film and photographic media, the Eames's own house was one of their few experiments with architecture. Inspired by the Case Study Program, which was propagated by California Arts and Architecture magazine in the 1940s and 1950s, the house was assembled entirely from standardized industrial components, and composed with a sensitive irregularity which reflected Eames' interest in traditional Japanese wood-framed architecture. Sited at the top of a gently inclined meadow, behind a protective row of mature eucalyptus trees, light filters into the interior where the furniture and judiciously selected objects form a significant part of the architectural ensemble.
