This book is a richly illustrated architectural introduction to the hallmark career of Richard Neutra. It chronicles his major life works from Lovell House- a mansion set on a landscaped hill with views of the Pacific Ocean and Santa Monica Mountains, to later projects such as the Kaufmann House and Nesbitt House.
Highlighting his taste for crisp structures nestled amid natural wonders, this book celebrates a particularly holistic brand of modernism, which incorporated the ragged lines and changing colours of nature as much as the pared down geometries of the International Style. Through it readers will discover an architect who spent a lifetime blending art, landscape, and living comfort to meet the precise needs of his clients. For fans of his work, design lovers or aspiring architects it's a great idea for a gift.
