JOHN LAUTNER - The Diary Issue

JOHN LAUTNER

    

Now that we are in the middle of our remodelling our Amsterdam home my eye is driven to the amazing architecture around me, and believe me Amsterdam is definitely a playground for wandering designers eyes. I have always loved round and natural forms and the balance and contradiction of cement, wood, glass and steel. John Lautner is one of the names that comes to mind when looking for inspiration. He integrates the outside to the interior of his designs and creates a relationship between the structures he builds and nature.  Major influenced by Frank Lloyd Wright another favourite, he spent time living in the Falling Water house, which was used as a communal home for artists and architects of the time.
