Sheats Goldstein House, Los Angeles, by John Lautner

Today’s video preshow featured the Sheats Goldstein House located high in a Los Angles canyon. The house, built in 1961 by California architect John Lautner, is a slick, triangular space ship that has obviously landed here to help us have a good time. While it does seem to scream bachelor pad with its cool concrete, buttery leather, and seamless glass, it was, in fact, commissioned by an adventurous artist and professor for their family. Looked at without the smoke and satin of Mr. Dogg and Mr. Williams, the house is more a geometric experiment in reaching for the infinite horizon.
