Rapper Ice Cube, has made a short film about his love of the architecture in his hometown Los Angeles.
“A lot of people think LA is just eyesore after eyesore… so what? They don’t know the LA I know,” says the rapper, real name O’Shea Jackson. “One man’s eyesore is another man’s paradise.”
Ice Cube says husband and wife design team Charles and Ray Eames, who built the Eames House in the 1940s were “doing mash-ups before mash-ups even existed”, adding: “It’s not about the pieces, it’s how the pieces work together, y’know, taking something that already exists and making it something special… kinda like sampling.”
“The Eames made structure and nature one. This is going green 1949 style, bitch. Believe that,” he said.
