John Lautner Foundation

Los Angeles
California,   United States

John Lautner (1911-94). The foundation website for this has all kinds of bits on it – well it used to – it has been rebuilt this year and feels a bit empty. There’s some good stuff if you dig though – here is a list of films Lautner houses appear in, and a growing photo library. They also have good newsletters you can read on site that unearth some of the lesser known houses. The site’s boxy styling doesn’t really do justice to Lautner’s work – I’d love to restyle it – for free!
