Description

The quintessential California Modernist "The continual refinement of human knowledge of the body and soul came to be one and the same thing for me, and the architecture of human living space its most necessary application and valuation." Richard Neutra Born and raised in Vienna, Richard Neutra (1872-1970) came to America early in his career, settling in California.

His influence on post-war architecture is undisputed, the sunny climate and rich landscape being particularly suited to his cool, sleek modern style.

Neutra had a keen appreciation for the relationship between people and nature; his trademark plate glass walls and ceilings which turn into deep overhangs have the effect of connecting the indoors with the outdoors.

Neutra s ability to incorporate technology, aesthetics, science, and nature into his designs him recognition as one of Modernist architectures greatest talents.

I am really enjoying these short architectural primers by Taschen. I've read three in the last month and have a feeling that I will be tackling more in the coming year.
