funny you should mention John Lautner though, someone recently told me it's a clear copy of his "Chemosphere House" which is owned by the owner of Taschen.

For anyone curious....

This is where it's located:,-117.252011&hl=en&geocode=&mra=mi&mrsp=0&sz=18&sll=32.872284,-117.252021&sspn=0.002807,0.006781&gl=us&ie=UTF8&ll=32.872469,-117.251995&spn=0.005614,0.013561&t=h&z=17

It's on Black Beach in San Diego. The track is for an elevator/car that goes up and down to the main house up above the cliff.

Norman Foster knocked off the 1960 Lautner House in his design for a tree house.
