John Lautner, FAIA

Lucien Hubbard’s Desert Hot Springs Motel, 1947

Description

From his years at Wright’s Taliesin West, Lautner understood the desert, and living on the desert. With this intimate knowledge, he designed the Desert Hot Springs Motel. Each of the 4 units became a walled fortress against the elements: heat, cold, wind, sand… and encroaching suburbia. Even as a fortress, light floods in as the unit space flows out to the private walled patios. Each unit is equipped with its own kitchenette & bath. An additional parcel affords room for additional units, or a pool. The property is now internationally recognized as one of the architect’s significant design concepts.
