Eames Love

Speaking of LA, have you seen this little film of Ice Cube talking about architecture in Los Angeles?  It's kind of fantastic.  He apparently studied architectural drafting before going into rap.  He speaks specifically about Charles and Ray Eames, and I love his observations.  "They was doing mash-ups before mash-ups even existed."
Check it out!  And for more of the Eameses, tune into PBS American Masters on the 19th of this month for a showing of the documentary Eames: The Architect and the Painter.  It looks utterly fantastic!

Thanks to Anna of Door Sixteen for bringing both of these lovely things to my attention!  She caught the doc at the IFC Center in New York and loved it, which makes me all the more excited to see it myself.
