Charles and Ray Eames worked in architecture, furniture, industrial and graphic design, art, photography, and film. Their output has stood the test of time and given them revered status among admirers of modern design. Their grandson Eames Demetrios, an author and filmmaker, directs the Eames Office and heads the eponymous foundation that is restoring the couple’s home in Pacific Palisades, California.

Demetrios will discuss the Eameses’ design philosophy and legacy as well as the restoration of their California home built in 1949 and deemed a National Historic Landmark in 2006. The couple designed the groundbreaking house (Case Study House #8) on a bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Built within a matter of days from pre-fabricated steel parts intended for industrial construction, it attracts thousands of visitors each year.

Free and open to the public. Sponsored by Indiana Modern, an affinity group of Indiana Landmarks, with the Design Arts Society of the Indianapolis Museum of Art and with support from the Cornelius O’Brien Lecture Series Concerning Historic Preservation.
