The Getty has the Lautner archive. Not sure how deep it is, but based on that Lautner exhibition of a decade ago, the architect seemed to keep a lot of his work.

I toured it last month, right before it went on the market (at that point, the house had been emptied, supposedly for some sympathetic renovations - apparently, either a ruse or a change in plans) and can go through my shots to see if I have any that provide perspective. One thing we were told is that the lovely spiraling steps between the main and bedroom levels are not original; at some point, the steps were moved from a position closer to the outer edge of the home to the current location.

Any images at all would be gratefully received, Stan---this baby needs all the exposure she can get, if only to further our understanding of a monstrously complex and confusing construction !
