This house, the Chemosphere, was used in both Charlie's Angels, and Body Double.
If you've seen the movies Diamonds are Forever, Charlie's Angels
or Body Double
, you've oohed and aahed over John Lautner's work. We blogged a book of his work
that was released in April. Now you can also catch photos, models, architectural renderings and videos of his work at a new exhibit, Between Heaven and Earth: The Architecture of John Lautner
In Diamonds are Forever, James Bond has a memorable fight with female bodyguards Bambi and Thumper.
The exhibit, which opened yesterday at the Hammer Museum in Westwood and remains open through October 12, will include lectures, screenings, a symposium on modern and contemporary architecture, and house tours of notable modernist homes in Los Angeles.
