AIA Film Night - The Spirit in Architecture: John Lautner
A Documentary by Bette Cohen
The Spirit in Architecture examines the work of John Lautner, one of the most visionary and profound architects, who began his career in Los Angeles in the 1930's. This illuminating journey into Lautner's world features never before seen footage from his apprenticeship with Frank Lloyd Wright at Taliesin; extensive documentation of his extraordinary buildings; and interviews with historians, critics, collaborators, clients, and Lautner himself, which put his achievements in perspective. His building's use in feature films and his Googie's coffee shop design demonstrate his contribution to popular culture.
