Per LA Conservancy website:

The Conservancy and the John Lautner Foundation are presenting a discussion with restoration architects and owners of Lautner homes about various approaches to stewardship—from restoration to reconstruction, and everything in between.

The distinguished panelists will provide brief visual presentations of five Lautner homes that have been renovated, then share a range of views on sustaining the master architect's built legacy. This candid dialogue will help to advance our collective thought and practice in terms of preserving Lautner (and other) structures in Los Angeles.

Moderated by Los Angeles Conservancy Executive Director Linda Dishman, the panel will include (in alphabetical order):

Malin Residence (Chemosphere).

Michael LaFetra, Conservancy board member and owner/past owner of several Lautner homes, discussing the Rawlins Residence (1980)

Ron Radziner, FAIA, Design Principal, Marmol Radziner, discussing the Garcia Residence (1962)
