On my recent trip to southern California to learn about the new Scion iQ, Creede and I found ourselves with an afternoon to fill. We rented a car and headed out to see if we could absorb some moderness. We did not have an appointment to see the Stahl house (Case Study #22), but like bad tourists we went anyway. Bruce the oldest son happened to be there showing the house for a potential photo shoot. He graciously let us poke our heads in. It was amazing just like Julius Shulman had captured. From the street there is pretty much nothing to see but as soon as you cross the gate, the view and setting just blows you away. Next time I am in LA I will make a proper appointment and get the full tour.

The Eames House (Case Study #8) was a little more accessible. We made an appointment that morning and headed over. It was a pretty amazing spot, so peaceful and calm. I love how the house was incorporated right into the side of the hill. All of the large trees made for a fantastic refuge. They are in the process of documenting and moving the majority of the interior to LACMA for an upcoming exhibit. They also said that they were going to take the opportunity, while the house was mostly empty, to do some moisture testing. They told us that the floor tiles were in need of repair but they had to be completely removed due to asbestos. I have to say that the house felt so original and untouched. This site is a must see if you are in the area.
