Between Earth and Heaven

One of the visionary architects of the twentieth century, John Lautner designed dramatically innovative buildings with a rare sensitivity to site, vista, and structure...this is the first publication to comprehensively explore his work, including his apprenticeship with Frank Lloyd Wright and the cultural and geographical context of Los Angeles, through an intensive examination of the archives of the John Lautner Foundation. ~Rizzoli

This isn't a new book. It was published by Rizzoli in 2008. I felt inspired to share it after seeing the cover of today's LA Times Magazine "Titans of Design"- Works of perfection from the masters who built up Southern California with vision and style.

I may not live in a Lautner, but do feel fortunate to live nearby the Marmol Radziner’s renovated Garcia House and see it everyday while sitting in my dining room.
