A propósito de John Lautner ·1911-1994· . John Lautner, un mago del hormigón, un escultor de vacíos. En sus manos, las sólidas y pesadas estructuras de hormigón se convirtieron en elementos livianos, flexibles y sensuales, elementos dotados de gran potencia visual, sólidos marcos que diálogan armónicamente con su entorno. Sin saberlo, casi todos hemos disfrutado de su arquitectura a través del cine como con la Elrod residence en "Diamonds are forever", la Reiner/Burchill Residence en "Less Than Zero" o la Sheats/Coldstein Residence en "The Big Lebowski" entre otras muchas. Si queréis más información sobre su obra podeis visitar la John Lautner Foundation donde podréis consultar planos, fotos ... y todo lo relacionado con el arquitecto. Por cierto, hay una única exposición en Europa sobre la obra de este gran arquitecto americano "Between Earth and Heaven: The Architecture of John Lautner" que tendrá lugar del 20 de marzo al 26 de julio de 2009 en The Lighthouse · Glasgow. Exposición organizada por the Hammer Museum en colaboración con la john Lautner foundation. También se proyectará un documental sobre la vida y obra de John Lautner, Infinite Space: The Architecture of John Lautner "
