the eames house can be read as a series in progress. in this series, a set number of off-the-shelf parts are rearranged and reconfigured to suit the landscape, to adapt to different volumetric desires, and to allow for a deepening understanding over time of the design conditions afforded by the kit. if the “bridge house” was the first expression in the series, and the constructed eames house the second, this version, wherein the house rolls in upon itself, expresses the thrid iteration of the parts.
as the structure and facade is cut and turned around a single column, a consistency of the layout and connections of the second iteration of the house are maintained.
formally, keeping with the idea of pre-fabrication and mass production, the facade has been updated to a series of contemporary mass-produced panels that ebb and flow in a wave pattern around the facade.
