Eames House

Los Angeles 1949, Charles and Ray Eames

Charles Eames, who always worked with his wife and partner Ray, was the most innovative and broad-based of American designers. The Eames House, in Pasadena, built as a house and studio, was one of his few experiments with architecture. It is one of the key buildings of the post-war Case Study House Program and a Modernist landmark in the architecture of the West Coast.

‘The Architecture in Detail series is without question one of the most beautifully illustrated and well-documented collections of monographs on individual buildings produced anywhere in the world.’
