Meet the Owner of Lautner's Garcia House: John McIlwee
John McIlwee owns Lautner’s Garcia House, one of the most important residences from the midcentury period in LA, that is part of our house tours on 19 February! Originally designed in 1962 for composer Russell Garcia its simple maintenance that is the biggest challenge now. John had to hire an electrician just to change a light bulb, because the ceiling is 35 feet high..
Meet the Friends: Elisabeth Tostrup
Elisabeth Tostrup is Emerita Professor at the Oslo School of Architecture and Design in Norway – and a Friend of Iconic Houses. She wrote in 2014 the book 'Planetveien 12, The Korsmo House. A Scandinavian Icon'. We know Korsmo as the architect of our member house Villa Stenersen. What made her decide to support Iconic Houses' mission? 
Meet the Designer of Iconic Houses: Willie van Burgsteden
No wonder the favorite house of our designer Willie van Burgsteden is the one that Albert Frey designed for himself around a rock (the Frey II House in Palm Springs). In 1993, Frey kindly gave her a tour and showed her his correspondence with Le Corbusier. Who wouldn't have wanted to been there then!
