To Do: John Lautner at the Hammer Museum

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.
