Who was the architect?

In the movie YESTERDAY the Los Angeles record agent for the singer lived in a very interesting house on the beach in Malibu. It looks like it was from the '70s and possibly by Lautner. Does anyone know for sure?

Grabbed from the trailer. Not Lautner---but something similar . . .

Harry Gesner, alive and well at 95, was as popular as a stereotypical Southern California surfer as an architect. He checked into joining the Taliesin crowd, but demurred. He didn't study architecture formally. The house shown, known as The Wave, supposedly inspired Jorn Utzon's design for the Sydney Opera House.
