Lautner (John) Papers

Title: John Lautner papers
Dates: 1929-2002
Number: 2007.M.13
Creator/Collector: Lautner, John
Extent: 958.1 Linear Feet (211 boxes, 711 flatfiles, 139 rolls)
Abstract: The John Lautner papers contain the comprehensive archive of this Southern California architect who became famous for such innovative structures as Chemosphere (the Malin House) and Silvertop (the Reiner House). Comprised of about 10,000 drawings, photographs and slides, and 17 models, plus Lautner's office and correspondence files, the archive is an important resource for the study of Southern California modernism in all its diverse aspects. The drawings detailing the structural engineering that enabled Lautner to create his sculpturally innovative houses will be of particular interest to historians of architecture and science.
