Garcia House designed by John Lautner, 1962, Los Angeles. The Garcia House hovers above a hillside lot in Los Angeles. With its expressive, organic shape and extensive use of custom glass, metal, and concrete components, this house, like all of Lautner's work, is the antithesis of the quest for standardization that epitomized much of post–World War II modern architectural design.
