Timeless architecture of John Lautner


John Lautner, born July 16, 1911 and died 24 October 1994, was an American architect, active in California.

 

Lautner was born in Marquette, Michigan and trained as an architect at Frank Lloyd Wright's Taliesin studio in the early 1930s. In 1940 he started his own architectural office in Los Angeles. At first he worked mostly with small residential projects in Southern California, but developed during the 1940s in the commercial end-anchored, so-called Googiearkitekturen. This style, which specifically applied to fast food restaurants and gas stations, characterized by futuristic, undulating forms and chromium, which like the future car designs. The name comes from the chain googie's Coffee Shop, which Lautner designed a facility to 1949th.

 

During the 1950s, continued Lautners futuristic expression further evolving into the so-contemporary fascination to the spacecraft. This was particularly reflected in Lautners most famous works, Malin Residence in 1960, one octagonal, Flying saucer-like houses on pillars that were placed in a steep slope. Lautner continued that practice until the late 1980s and died in 1994 in Los Angeles.
