Picturing 95-year-old Frey doing nude yoga.
Frey selected yellow curtains to match the winter wildflower blooms of San Jacinto mountain. The deep, warm blue perforated corrugated aluminum ceiling panels are just his Corbu-does-Home-Depot genius.
I finally got to visit the Frey House II and it did not disappoint. 700 square feet with the most famous rock in 20th century architecture.
came across this @girardstudio drawing in the @cooperhewitt online archive
The 🍎 doesn’t fall far from the 🌳
Way past bedtime. Just can’t get enough of this kid.
The humble beginning of @moogsynthesizers... I love visiting this 1964 prototype in the archives storage @thehenryford. So many great artists have made so much great music thanks to this delightful contraption and the sonic possibilities it unleashed.
Thank god I was raised atheistically, but that didn't mean I escaped going to church, or rather, churches, in my youth. It seemed that everywhere we went my parents—with their handy Michelin guides—were able to craft itineraries that consisted largely of traveling from village church (romanesque) to village church (rococo) to village church (ruined) with time for a picnic in between. A family trip to the Swedish island of Gotland saw us check off roughly two thirds of the island’s 98 medieval churches in one week. While I may have little experience in judging the quality of such buildings for their intended use of worship, I do appreciate the emotional character and the sense of solemnity or spirituality that can be imbued in their design. Such was the case with Eliel Saarinen’s First Christian church in Columbus, Indiana, which moved me deeply when I visited this past summer—so much so, it seems, to want craft this ludicrous caption. There is a quality to the treatment of light, the materials, the decorative motifs, and somewhat surprisingly, the volumes themselves, that communicates a feeling of calm and peace throughout. Jah bless.
Worth Celebrating... “An Eames Celebration” runs from now until February 2018 at the @vitradesignmuseum and includes not one, not two, not three, but four exhibitions of their work from various perspectives, including the excellent retrospective, "Charles & Ray Eames: The Power of Design," as well as "Ideas and Information: The Eames Films," "Play Parade, An Eames Exhibition for Kids," and "Kazam! The Furniture Experiments of Charles & Ray Eames." Incredible to see these things IRL people. Make the trek.
All packed and ready to go...
