Rapper Ice Cube Professes His Love For Architecture [Video]
Hip hop artist and actor gives a tour of The Eames, an architectural landmark in Los Angeles.
Ice Cube, born O’Shea Jackson, is known for his rap-star quality and acting career, but little is known about his love for design and architecture. In a campaign video for the Pacific Standard Time Art exhibit in L.A., USA, Ice Cube reveals that he studied architecture and drafting before he got into rap music. The short film shows Ice Cube touring The Eames house and complimenting the duo designers for being at the forefront of architecture.
“In a world of McMansions, where the structure takes up all the land, the Eames [house] made the structure and the land one….They [Charles and Ray Eames] were doing mash-ups before mash-ups even existed,” proclaims Ice Cube.
