Several organizations in the Los Angeles area sponsor tours of architecturally significant buildings. In December 2006, the magazine art ltd. featured an article about these tours, including personal experience with some of them. The article is currently available here but may expire in the future. We have created a pdf of the article for that uncertain future.
The Foundation does not usually provide addresses or maps to Lautner homes, because most of the homeowners want to maintain their privacy. However, there are sources available for those interested in viewing these homes from the street. Perhaps the most helpful is this guide:
Los Angeles: An Architectural Guide, by David Gebhard and Robert Milton Winter
There are also tour companies that specialize in architectural tours:
Architecture Tours LA
And there are sites that offer more information for self-guided touring (Thank you, Martin Daoust, for these links):
