Architectural photographer, Julius Shulman doing his thing. California, 1960.
And one of the resulting images, Case Study House #22
When I wrote about the Julius Shulman documentary back in September of 2009, I had no idea it would take so long for it to come to Atlanta. But come it will in June to the High Museum. (As much as I love Atlanta, I hate waiting for movies to wind their way around to us). The good news is, not only is the screening free, but it will be a part of Modern Atlanta 2010.
While MA is only in its fourth year, it is quickly becoming one of my favorite design events in town, the highlight of which is the Modern Atlanta Home Tour. You may remember this home from last year's tour, photographed here for Atlanta Homes and Lifestyles.
Yes, this is the same house. Business up front, party in the back.
The interiors use the same logic, morphing from traditional turn-of-the-century roots into something unmistakably modern. I could not get over the guest bedroom, suspended in glass above the kitchen. While Atlanta is not really known so much for modernism, we do have a few surprises to share.
For more on the house and designers, visit Atlanta Homes and Lifestyles and the BLDGS website.
Modern Atlanta events run from June 1st to June 6th. Hope to see you there!
