_ice cube & the eames

I know this has been knocking around for at least a month or so but a recent twitter chat reminded me of how good this video is. Hip hop heavyweight Ice Cube extols the good, bad and ugly of L.A. as well as the resourcefulness, pragmatism and clarity of the design of the Eames' Case Study House #8 reflecting on his pre-N.W.A. days as an architectural draftsman.

"This is going green 1949 style bitch, believe that" - if only Jonathan Glancey was as concise.
