Eichler Sessions

A series of conversations with creative pioneers hosted in historic Eichler homes. During the early 1950s, award-winning homebuilder Joseph Eichler influenced the face of American architecture by developing distinctive residential subdivisions of Mid-Century modern style tract housing. The City of Orange is the site of 350 of the 600 Southern California Eichler homes.

 

Tickets are $40 per guest and support The How The Why, a free educational podcast that documents the creative process and the creative purpose.  Each Eichler Session is recorded and published as a special episode.

 

Produced in conjunction with Jeffrey Crussell Fine Properties.
