John Lautner

(b. Marquette, Michigan 1911; d. 1994)

John Lautner was born in Marquette, Michigan in 1911. Lautner received his bachelor of science degree from Northern Michigan University and later apprenticed with Frank Lloyd Wright at Taliesin Fellowship in Wisconsin and Arizona.

Lautner generates designs that owe a great deal to his six year fellowship at Taliesin. He creates daring and innovative spaces that fit each design situation and which meet each client's individual requirements. He attempts to improve life with spaces that meet all basic human needs for emotional, psychological and physical shelter.

Utilizing visually intriguing and functionally ingenious spaces, Lautner creates houses with vast clear span interiors. He integrates water and the surrounding landscape into his overall design. He boldly experiments with new industrial processes and materials in his continual search to meet total human needs. He considers concrete the most desirable material for his needs, because it allows for an infinite variety of spaces.
