Projects list in portable document format (pdf)

The list of projects by John Lautner is still a work in progress but is gaining in accuracy every day. You can download a list in portable document format (pdf) that is current as of October 2008, prepared by Tycho Saariste, based on the research he and Jan-Richard Kikkert have undertaken since 2006. The two Dutch architects have made it their mission to visit every Lautner building (see this article by his partner in the venture). As new information is discovered the list will be updated.
