All of Richard Neutra's works gathered together in one volume "[...] the definitive volume on the Viennese-born architect." - Los Angeles Times, Los Angeles Originally from Vienna,Richard Neutracame 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. His ability to incorporate technology, aesthetic, science, and nature into his designs brought him to the forefront of Modernist architecture. For the first time, all of Neutra's works(nearly 300 private homes, schools, and public buildings) are gathered together in one volume, illustrated by over 1000 photographs,including those of Julius Shulman and other prominent photographers.
