Also Included are some special tours of the greatest modern architecture designed by Richard Neutra. For example; the Lovell House, 1929.
“United by the idea that man’s survival depends on design”, Richard Neutra.
See you there!

On the afternoon that I photographed architect Dion Neutra, he happened to be looking at the Tashen “Neutra” book by Barbara Lamprecht on a page about the Singleton House, 1959 in Bel Air, CA. His smile of delight tells the whole story while glancing at his father’s beautiful architectural designs. This happens to be one of my favorite houses designed by Richard Neutra.
