With the Hammer's current exhibition now open, "Between Earth and Heaven: The Architecture of John Lautner" we participated in a walk-through of the show with curator and architect Frank Escher this weekend. With a large group and terrible acoustics, we missed a large portion of the lecture, but the MAK Center has assured us the tour will be a podcast that will be made available on its site shortly. More successfully, we got a sneak peek at the Tyler House in Studio City, which will be on this weekend's tour. The 1950 two-bedroom, two-bath (plus an office with a separate entrance) was bought in 1993 and renovated after the Northridge quake. Not bad, right? This house, as well as the Schwimmer and Harpel residences are on this Sunday's tour; more info on the Hammer web site.
