This week design one is giving a deep bow to the architect John Lautner who would have turn 100 years on 16th of July. Being a Frank Lloyd Wright apprentice is surely something that pays off over the years. The prove of this is Lautner’s own style and approach to the environment – his architectural heritage has become an emblem to the landscape it appears in. John Lautner’s prominent projects list is so vast this post could hardly outline it. If you really want to know more about this architectural pioneer please do pay a visit to The John Lautner Foundation site. Design One recommends the interview of Ms. Laskey with John Lautner.


Sometimes when we speak of contemporary art we intent to diminish the role of drawing – most conversations’ agendas are occupied by installations, large scale drawings, environmental sculptures but not drawings. However, here comes a bright ray of light courtesy by Jonathan Zawada – an australian artist whose drawings and sculptures dare to provoke deeper thoughts and at the same time don’t pretend to be a wow-thing. Should you feel inspired by the images shown here you could pay a visit to his official site to get a broader picture, you won’t regret.
