Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Great large size hardcover book, on 179 glossy pages profusely illustrated with vintage B&W photos showing some houses before these were re-modeled by Lautner himself for new owners, and color photos showing how the houses looked like in 1994, the year Lautner passes away. The book also has superb color photos of the original drawings for the houses in the book. As most Taschen books, it has text in 3 languages: English-German-French.
John Lautner was a student of Frank Lloyd Wright and studied at Taliesin West in Arizona, before going to California to work on an order. Upon arrival, John Lautner didn't like Los Angeles but during his working/designing life time he certainly transformed "California living" for those fortunate enough to buy one of his amazing houses.The sheer daring of his designs remains stunning.
He loved to work with "concrete" and made amazing houses out of it (e.g. Arango & Silvertop & Sheats/Goldstein house)... in my opinion, John Lautner is probably the best architect ever!
Don't be confused with the Taschen 2005 paperback version which is offered as that's a completely different smaller book with only 96 pages.
This 1999 Big Art book is a must-have for fans of John Lautner's arTchitecture!

This is an excellent monograph. If you have happened upon a picture of a Lautner house and want to discover more this is an ideal starting point. A motel and nineteen wonderful aspirational (futuristic even in 2015) living spaces created for the Californian landscape and climate are presented in this slim volume. A useful introductory essay is followed by many photographs and at least a site plan for the selected projects to enable the reader to enjoy and understand each building. My regret is that the Hope House recently used by LV for a fashion show is not included - but that is well-documented elsewhere. The usual Taschen high production values and incredible value for money are present in this book.

Good edition with many photos and short descriptions. Doesn't contain any technical details. Perfect for the basic and mostly visual introduction.
