The Stahl House

I just returned from LA and I have lots to report! The TED conference! The fabulous students at Art Center! But first, this…the Stahl house.
I had absolutely no idea that this exquisite architectural marvel is owned by the Stahls, and that they are actually part of my extended family. From Wikipedia:
Case Study House #22, aka Stahl House, is a modernist styled house in the Hollywood Hills section of Los Angeles, California that was designed by C.H. “Buck” Stahl (Client) and Pierre Koenig (Architect). Built in 1959 and part of the Case Study Houses program, the house is considered an iconic representation of modern architecture in Los Angeles during the 20th century.[1] It was made famous by a photograph by Julius Shulman showing two women leisurely sitting at a corner of the house with a panoramic view of the city through the floor to ceiling glass walls at night.
If you’re in LA and would like to see this fabulous home visit http://www.stahlhouse.com. They do organized tours. Well worth it if you’re at all interested in architecture. Also see: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1cQAdRx3fg4
