John Lautner’s Legacy Discussion at LACMA


I’m braving trekking across Los Angeles during Carmageddon for a LACMA panel on architect John Lautner’s legacy:

“This panel, featuring architects and critics Michael Rotondi, Craig Hodgetts, and Sylvia Lavin, will look at Lautner’s work, assessing its impact on the thinking and practice of architecture. It will be followed by a conversation on architectural preservation, featuring Frank Preusser, LACMA’s Conservation Scientist, and Christopher Carr, Vice President of The John Lautner Foundation. The conversation will be moderated by Nicholas Olsberg, archivist, cultural historian, and co-curator of the 2008 exhibition Between Earth and Heaven, the Architecture of John Lautner.”

Sounds dangerously dry, but any man who imagined worlds like this wills that sort of worship.

Plus, I really want to grab a matcha green tea boba — almond milk, please — from Urth Caffe…
