Case Study House No. 8- Eames House

I recently learned about the Case Study Houses through watching the documentary Visual Acoustics. The film explores the relationship between the architectural photographer Julius Shulman and the mid-century modernist buildings he photographed. He’s my hero. One of the amazing structures he captured with his camera was the Eames House built by the design duo Ray and Charles Eames. Who I also watched a documentary on. It’s open to the public for exterior self-lead tours so I made a reservation to check it out. It’s the kind of place that make you feels at peace. The steel frame with large glass panes really lets the light in. Outside, whilst swinging on Ray’s swing, you hear the wind blow through the trees, the birds sing hello, and the ocean waves break down below. You don’t need anything else. It’s a major dream house! To say the least.




About Soup and the Clouds

I treasure the small adventures in life. Such as, listening to records, making jam from farmer's market produce, seeing new sites, eating the best tomato I've ever had, reading a good book, watching a film, appreciating a good font, going for a long bike ride or walking down a street I've never walked on before. The list goes on.
