In honor of what would have been architect John Lautner's 100th birthday on July 16, 2011, The John Lautner Foundation and media sponsor FORM Magazine are presenting the John Lautner Turns 100 series from July 16-November 13, 2011. The series will reflect on and celebrate Lautner’s architectural ouvre while raising awareness about the continued preservation of each of his works. The events making up the series include exhibitions, film screenings, home tours, symposia, receptions and more.
John Lautner gained prominence studying under Frank Lloyd Wright at Taliesin. He is known for his respect for and celebration of the natural landscape surrounding each site, and his works, often dramatic and scenic, have been the setting for numerous films and features. Lautner was made a Fellow of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) in 1970, and was honored with a Gold Medal for lifetime achievement in 1993 by AIA Los Angeles.
Events throughout the series will include a display at LACMA, a home tour of some of Lautner's most famous works, including the Schwimmer House and Jacobsen House, a gala at the Harpel House and more. For a full schedule of the events see the list on the John Lautner Foundation's events page.
The John Lautner Turns 100 series partners include FORM Magazine, the American Institute of Architects – Los Angeles Chapter, Getty Research Institute, LACMA, Los Angeles Conservancy, MAK Center for Art and Architecture at the Schindler House, The American Cinematheque, and the Society of Architectural Historians.
