The fragmented Eames House [573]

The Eames House, completed in 1949, is a magnificent example of a fragmented treatment of the facade and its filters. The large canvases are divided, with conventional carpentry, into an array of fragments that receive a special treatment. Some are opaque, others translucent and other transparent. Some are fixed; other operable by projecting outwards, and other are horizontal sliding and some other form large upwards sliding panels. The opaque panels are made of different industrial materials with different textures and colours.
