The Quintessential California Modernist
Richard Neutra and his search for modern architectureOriginally from Vienna, Richard Neutra came to America early in his career, settling in California. His influence on postwar 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, aesthetics, science, and nature into his designs brought him to the forefront of Modernist architecture.
In this volume, all of Neutra’s works (nearly 300 private homes, schools, and public buildings) are gathered together, illustrated by over 1,000 photographs, including those of Julius Shulman and other prominent photographers.

Uno dei libri di architettura da avere in libreria, molto formativo, direi fondamentale.
Livre très complet

Le livre est très complet, c'est à dire que vraiment tout les projets sont représentés, cependant je trouve dommage que la présentation des projets soit assez sommaire, sur certain il y a seulement 1 ou 2 images.
