I've blogged about his work before, when one of his fantastic creations was featured in The Big Lebowski. I'll be going to the Hammer Museum exhibition sometime between July 13 - October 12, 2008.
Lautner built the home below in 1957. Tree trunks break up the windowpanes.
The trees blend into the view. Breathtaking.
One of his most famous creations sits in Hollywood Hills. The Chemosphere was built in 1960 & was laughed off by some critics. I love it. It was a location in the recent "Charlie's Angels" film.
The home below sits in Acapulco Bay, Mexico. Notice how there are no railings. A moat of shallow water surrounds the edges to maintain an unobstructed view. It was created in 1973.
The home below was featured in the James Bond film, “Diamonds Are Forever.”
