John Lautner: The mirror of Los Angeles

In the long roster of great Los Angeles architects, John Lautner stands out more than any other as the mirror of this city. Lautner, who died in 1994, would have marked his 100th birthday this month, and a slate of events is celebrating his legacy. The city and the architect shared the same creatively rebellious soul. Both have the courage to be unorthodox and defy conformity, and both have suffered for it.
