About John Lautner · 1911-1994 ·. John Lautner, a concrete magician, an sculptor of the empty spaces. In his hands, strong and heavy structures became light, flexible and sensual, elements with great visual power, solid frameworks that talk in harmony to their environment. Without knowing it, we have enjoyed his architecture through films, like "Diamonds are forever", "Less Than Zero" or "The Big Lebowski" among many others. If you want more information on his work I suggest you to visit the John Lautner foundation where you can find drawings, photographs ... and everything about him. From 20 Mar 09 to 26 Jul 09 "Between Earth and Heaven: The Architecture of John Lautner" is the only European showing about the architect at The Lighthouse in Glasgow. An exhibition organized by the Hammer Museum in collaboration with the John Lautner Foundation. It will be a documentary on the life and work of John Lautner, "Infinite Space: The Architecture of John Lautner "
