The John Lautner-designed Sheats-Goldstein House, also known as hustler Jackie Treehorn's pad in The Big Lebowski, is being donated to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.

Lautner, who LA Times architecture critic Christopher Hawthorne calls a "Frank Lloyd Wright disciple, iconoclast, and reluctant Angeleno," designed the home in 1963. James Goldstein, who bought the property in 1972 and has been restoring it, agreed to donate the building to LACMA.

Michael Govan, the director and CEO of LACMA tells the LA Times: "For me it ranks as one of the most important houses in all of L.A. And as one of the most L.A. houses, because of its connection to the view, that long view toward the ocean."
