The Barbican Centre hosts The World of Charles and Ray Eames this October, delving into the world of the pioneering architects, designers and filmmakers. The extensive exhibition surveys their careers and extraordinary work at the Eames Office - a 'laboratory' that was open for four decades where the Eameses, their collaborators and their staff produced a number of pioneering designs. Featuring film, multi-channel slideshows and photography, the Barbican explores how their work was driven by philosophical ideals, embracing the potential of technology and science for the common good.
