One of the more inspirational and influential architects of the twentieth century, John Lautner was revered in the world of architecture and design throughout his sixty-year-long career. Architects like Frank Lloyd Wright and Frank Gehry give a substantial amount of credit to Lautner, who influenced their designs and minds as architects. Save this picture!© Patricia ParinejadAs is obvious in his architecture and especially in the Schwimmer House, Lautner valued attention to space, materiality and relationship with the natural environment.Save this picture!© Patricia ParinejadLautner was very aware of the emotional affects created by dramatic changes of materials themselves or of their orientation and organization. The multiple houses of Lautner fused stone, steel, glass and wood to create flowing spaces that all seem to expand into each other or out into the skies and surrounding natural environment.Save this picture!© Patricia Parinejad”An aesthetic, philosophical and social visionary, Lautner made buildings that continue to amaze architects and patrons alike with their formal variety and freedom, their structural originality and their sculptural force.”Save this picture!© Patricia ParinejadNatural light floods into the interior spaces of the residence through light wells and large windows which look out over the green surroundings and cityscape. The use of warm woods and stones also bring nature indoors, fusing the spaces and blurring the lines between indoors and out.Save this picture!© Patricia ParinejadAn overwhelming majority of his structures were built in the Los Angeles Area, where the social interest of art, fashion, design and architecture seem to prevail.  Surprisingly enough, even in a city so in tune with creativity and the arts, the buildings of Lautner had until recently only been celebrated widely in the design world alone; not more than a slight portion of the larger population was as informed or knowledgeable about the architect and his works. Save this picture!© Patricia ParinejadThe Hammer Museum of UCLA hoped to change this, as they held an exhibition in 2008 featuring photographs of his work, physical models and a biographical video.Save this picture!© Patricia ParinejadProject gallerySee allShow lessKaohsiung Competition Proposal / Ojanen ChiouArticlesGuosen Securities Tower / Massimiliano + Doriana FuksasArticles Share “COPY” United States ArchDaily Photographs Year: center_img Architects: John Lautner Year Completion year of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard 1982 AD Classics: AD Classics: Schwimmer House / John Lautner AD Classics: AD Classics: Schwimmer House / John LautnerSave this projectSaveAD Classics: AD Classics: Schwimmer House / John Lautner Projects “COPY” CopyAbout this officeJohn LautnerOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsArchitecture ClassicsResidential ArchitectureHousesDabasHousesBeverly Hills3D ModelingUnited StatesPublished on November 17, 2010Cite: Megan Sveiven. “AD Classics: AD Classics: Schwimmer House / John Lautner” 17 Nov 2010.
