Join The Lautner Compound and The John Lautner Foundation in celebrating the work of famed American architect John Lautner with a series of lectures given by the owners and architect of some of Lautner’s most notable and recently discovered homes. Owners Tracy Beckmann and Ryan Trowbridge will provide their personal insights into the renovation of the award-winning Lautner Compound in Desert Hot Springs in 1947. Together they will expound on the glamorous but forgotten history of the original owner and movie mogul Lucien Hubbard’s vision and the challenges they faced during their hands-on renovation of the architecturally-significant property. The lecture will include “before-and-after” photographs which will highlight the full magnitude of the property’s magnificent transformation. Their talk will provide aficionados of great architecture some practical insight into what it takes to save some of America's most important and iconic buildings.
The Lautner Lecture series will be hosted by noted fine artist Danny Heller specializing in all things midcentury modern. The ticket price will include a tour of a Lautner Living Unit, The Lautner grounds, The Park and The Ranch House which comprise the compound. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the John Lautner Foundation, striving to preserve the Lautner archive; educate the public on the architecture of Lautner; and provide support for preservation, protection and maintenance of all Lautner structures.
