Who is the ultimate architect’s architect?

John Lautner, according to the Hammer Museum:

Lautner is often referred to as an architect’s architect and many renowned practitioners, such as Frank Gehry, have cited him as an abiding influence. One can see the influence and legacy of his vision time and again in the work of architects that have followed him.

Between Heaven and Earth: The architecture of John Lautner opened recently at the Hammer Museum in LA.

Nicholas Olsberg, former director of the CCA, and Frank Escher of Escher Gunewardena co-curated the exhibition.
