Dwell: The Only Home John Lautner Ever Built for Himself Is Listed for the First Time in Decades

By Kathryn M.

Before he became a monolithic figure in American architecture, John Lautner’s first significant solo project was a home he designed for himself and his first wife, MaryBud, just on the heels of a fellowship with Frank Lloyd Wright at Taliesin. Now, for the first time in decades, the Los Angeles property is up for sale.
