Book Overview

Landmarks: An impeccable blend of building and environment

In the architecture of Richard Neutra (1892-1970), inside and outside find their perfect modernist harmony. As the Californian sun glints off sleek building surfaces, vast glass panel walls allow panoramic views over mountains, gardens, palm trees, and pools.

Neutra moved to the United States from his native Vienna in 1923 and settled in Los Angeles. He displayed his affinity with architectural settings early on with the Lovell House, set on a landscaped hill with views of the Pacific Ocean and Santa Monica Mountains. Later projects such as the Kaufmann House and Nesbitt House would continue this blend of art, landscape, and living comfort, with Neutra's clients often receiving detailed questionnaires to define their precise needs.

This richly illustrated architect introduction presents the defining projects of Neutra's career. As crisp structures nestle amid natural wonders, we celebrate a particularly holistic brand of modernism which incorporated the ragged lines and changing colors of nature as much as the pared down geometries of the International Style.

   2 Books Came Damaged in same location Top Right. Covered up to appear new.
I'm afraid to order another copy ''. It will be a charm three times. Amazon is usually known to describe and well package items, but this is an anomaly. Quality issue of the manufacturer, with gauge on the top. Also, no dust jacket is not recommended. So should say in description.

   Excellent views of the Kauffman House
We recently visited Palm Springs and looked at the all-unique low slung desert modern house. Unless for a small glimpse, the Kauffman can 't be seen from the road.
