"Disappearing space seems to me to be the most durable and endurable and life-giving quality in architecture."
- John Lautner

American architect John Lautner (1911-1994) is responsible for some of the most original buildings of the space age and, indeed, the 20th century. The residences he designed in the Los Angeles area, including the Chemosphere House and the Silvertop, are synonymous with the hopes and dreams of an entire era. Characterized by sweeping rooflines, glass-paneled walls, and steel beams, his buildings displayed a combination of fantasy and minimalism, often integrating water and incorporating surrounding landscapes. Lautner always placed great importance on the relationship between humans, space, and nature.

Jeremy Scott

“It’s the John Lautner book. Perhaps selfishly so I can show pictures of my house when it was first built in 1947 by the master himself.”
Jeremy Scott
