A house with a one-of-a-kind pedigree will soon hit the auction block in Los Angeles. Built in 1939 -- the same year as Fallingwater -- it was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, its construction supervised by a young John Lautner.
I'm exposed to a lot of "design." I have watched dozens of designers re-design broken homes. And while they do make those homes work better, they seem to rely on lots of slick finishes and design parlor tricks.
