Anyone interested in modernism in Los Angeles likely knows the name Michael LaFetra, a film producer turned serial modernist home collector. If you've been on a modernism tour by the MAK Center, LA Conservancy or some other architecture non-profit, chances are you've already traipsed through one of his houses. Now Modernism Magazine profiles the man who owns (or used to own) Schindler's How House in Silver Lake; Lautner's Stevens House in Malibu and Wolff House in West Hollywood; Kappe's Gould/LaFetra House in Brentwood; Thornton Abell's Rich House in Brentwood; and Koenig's Case Study #21 in Laurel Canyon. And there's more: LaFetra is building the last commissioned work by Pierre Koenig on the beach in Malibu. [Image of How House by Tim Street-Porter courtesy of Modernism Magazine].
