    The Eames created a distinct space where nature and civilization impact and affect the presence of one another. Human relationship to the surrounding social environment is also pertinent when constructing the Eames’s narrative.

The sculpture was fashioned from a 5-foot burnt wooden beam with a rusted curving spike protruding from the top. Ray Eames did not radically transform or alter the object in any way. She merely took the burnt wooden post out of its original context as a piece of rubbish, places on a pedestal, and brought it into her home, turning it into a piece of history that now tells a story…

    The Eames House and Farnsworth house do share common material and tectonic expression. They are constructed of similar materials and in somewhat similar fashions. Additionally, both forms are constructed in a fashion that allows them to be apart of its surrounding site. However, they do have divergences.

    This selection was written to describe the conditions of tenement houses, overcrowded slums that filled New York City during the late 1900’s. The first sentence of this selection states, “The first tenement New York knew bore the mark of Cain from its birth, though a generation passed before the writing was deciphered.” The author means that tenement houses were “cursed,” or were terrible creations from the very beginning, but this was ignored and not tended to for a long time. The owners of…

When I was 11 years old, and my brother was 16. My brother tripped onto the street while riding his bike. There was a woman driving over the speed limit and ran my brother over leaving him with a fractured arm. My brother was rushed to the…

    Growing up in my childhood, I never really made a lot of friends. In my early years of education, I was very sociable, but to my dismay, people just didn’t seem the friendly type. I never really did feel safe in the school district. That being said, there was only one place that I would always go to relax and get the stress of my mind, and that would be my humble abode, my home. Because I walked to school on a regular basis, I always knew where to go, even during the renovations. I mean, I could…

    the big move from New York to Texas. The house we lived in was my childhood home and my husband and I shared it for fifteen years together. This was not going to be an easy task. Our first hurdle was preparing for this huge adventure. Secondly, we needed to drive both cars down. That meant that we would not have the other person to take over driving when our eyelids became as heavy as weights over our eyes. Finally, we would need to settle into this strange new world.

This event was probably the least anticipated event all year, it was dreadful and tedious as there was nothing to look forward because there was no recognition for winners and we always had to clean up the fields after the…

    Harris in her book Little White Houses illustrates how her grandparents purchased a house in a white neighborhood to hide their Jewishness (Harris, 2013). Harris had to examine the objects inside the home to negate the incorrect perception and interpretation the whiteness of the house reveals. The same process and attention that I take in the study of the houses is the same consideration I give to the objects within the home. Once I have a comprehensive interpretation of both the objects within…
