Lautner built most of his homes in the canyons and, as usual, he thought of everything. The concrete roof is unlikely to catch fire and the steel supports have survived two major earthquakes.

Lautner is my favorite architect. One feels pride and joy when looking at his work. Are there any well known architects today who design in the same heroic and beautiful vein as Lautner?

I'm always looking, but I haven't found one yet, even among Lautner's students and former associates.
