“My whole life is devoted to architecture… that’s what I live on.” – John Lautner

Infinite Space traces the lifelong quest of visionary genius John Lautner to create “architecture that has no beginning and no end.” It is the story of brilliance and of a complicated life – and the most sensual architecture of the 20th century. As a young man, Lautner broke from his mentor, Frank Lloyd Wright, and went west to California to forge his own style. Idolized by young modernists, criticized by academics and beloved by his clients, he led a life in pursuit of unusual beauty. Renowned architectural filmmaker Murray Grigor explores Lautner’s dramatic spaces, from L.A.’s Chemosphere to the Elrod House in Palm Springs. (Murray Grigor, 2009, 90 min.)
