Video tour of one of famed American architect's best works

A nice video tour of famed American architect John Lautner‘s Sheats Goldstein Residence, one of Lautner’s most acclaimed structures (after the Chemosphere, probably). You might recognize the house as the place where the Dude gets drugged in The Big Lebowski, although that was supposed to be in Malibu, but who’s counting. The tour is narrated by current owner James Goldstein, who purchased the house in 1972 and spent the next two decades renovating it with Lautner himself until his death in 1994. But the work hasn’t ceased, and Goldstein continues perfecting his gem to the stage where it is today. Truly one of the great achievements in American architecture, the 5-minute clip is well worth your time… just try not to get distracted by the naked swimming form of model Audrey Chihocky, which might make the otherwise stunning video NSFW…
