Eichler And The Future Of Mid-Century Modern Architecture
Dwell On Design has an event scheduled that is sure to capture the interest of us Eichler lovers. On Friday, May 29, 2015 Joseph Eichler’s grandson, Steven Eichler, will share his thoughts and insights, personal photos, and memories of his grandfather’s legacy when he appears onstage at the LA Convention Center as part of the weeklong Dwell on Design LA event.
The afternoon with Steven Eichler, who is a principal of Eichler Designs and the founder of Eichler Living, promises to be a fascinating glimpse into the world of Eichler design – past, present and future. Steven Eichler’s memories of spending time with his grandfather and stories passed down through family members, friends, coworkers will offer a personal glimpse into the man that Joseph Eichler was, as well as the aesthetic, practical, and business decisions that went into building Eichler homes.
Eichler can also be expected to share his thoughts on Eichler renovations (as well as how his grandfather might have viewed them) and offer some input on the qualities he feels an “authentic” newly built Eichler should embody.
Dwell Design Week runs May 25-29, 2015. It has something for everybody and will include home tours, exhibits, and presentations for professionals and any of us who just want to take a look. For more information visit Dwell on Design, Los Angeles 2015.
