UCSB Arts & Lectures, the Carsey-Wolf Center and the Art, Design & Architecture Museum at UCSB present Infinite Space, a portrait of visionary Southern California architect John Lautner, on Sunday, May 19 at 3 p.m. the UCSB Pollock Theater. The screening is part of the ART | ARCHITECTURE ON FILM, a film series revealing the stories behind some of the most fascinating art, artists and architects of our time.

Infinite Space traces the lifelong quest of visionary genius John Lautner to create what he called “architecture that has no beginning and no end.” It is the story of brilliance and of a complicated life – and of the most sensual architecture of the 20th century. As a young man, Lautner broke from his mentor, Frank Lloyd Wright, and went west to California to forge his own style. Idolized by young modernists, criticized by academics and beloved by his clients, he led a life in pursuit of unusual beauty. “My whole life is devoted to architecture,” said Lautner. “That’s what I live on.”

In this 2009 film, renowned architectural filmmaker Murray Grigor explores Lautner’s dramatic spaces, from L.A.’s Chemosphere to the Elrod House in Palm Springs.

Tickets to Infinite Space are $10 for the general public and $5 for all students with a current student ID. Admission includes a complimentary post-screening reception for those ages 21 and older.
