Moderation: Peter Erasmus
Guests: Dr. Hannelore Paflik-Huber (art historian and curator, Berlin)
Californian John Lautner (1911-1994) is one of America's best-known architects. His houses, which can almost be described as works of art, have an unmistakable character, which is created above all by the seemingly infinite spaces and the newly defined relationship between interior and exterior space. It is not without reason that his buildings are also in great demand as film backdrops.
Director Murray Grigor takes Lautner's 100th birthday as an opportunity to produce a cinematic portrait of the late architect and present his most important work. For this purpose, the filmmaker talks to Lautner's family, his employees, today's house owners, and prominent companions such as Frank O. Gehry and Sean Connery.
