A ’57 Chevy visits the Farnsworth House – video!

Click the arrow to put the video into gear.
The architecture begins after 4:00.

Bye-bye Mies American Pie
Drove my Chevy to the levee
and fortunately the Farnsworth was dry…

Lord Peter Palumbo, who used to own the Farnsworth House (that is not him in the video), also loved and collected vintage cars. Funny to me how the ’57 car looks so dated and the ’51 house so timeless.

Or, as the man says in the video,

“The house is a basic ’50’s house, and they kind of look good with each other.”

Yeah. A basic ’50’s house. Almost everybody had one, didn’t they?

And who are the unidentified strangers going about their business in the house? The Palumbos? Or the plumbers?

    Is this post indicative of a Los Angeles influence?

    lol. Could be. I love the automobile headlamp embedded into an interior wall out here, by Richard Neutra. L.A. – car city. But the freeways are open to nature. Sheesh.

    Monday’s post will definitely show a STRONG L.A. influence. Though it’s not about L.A. Stay tuned.
