The House of Cards program was developed by the Eames Office in 1952. It began as a deck of cards with six interlocking slots. The cards can be linked together in a variety of ways to create unique forms and structures.
Carla Hartman, the Education Director of the Eames Office and a granddaughter of Charles and Ray Eames, visited ArtPrize last year and thought it would be the perfect venue to create a giant House of Cards. These cards are over one foot long and are constructed from sturdy cardboard.
