Published by Taschen, Neutra provides a compact insight into the career of architect Richard Neutra (1892–1970). Born in Vienna and settled in Los Angeles, Neutra created a unique blend of art, landscape and living comfort, that can be seen in many of his works, including the Lovell House and Kaufmann House. Written by Barbara Lamprecht, writer and teacher in architectural history, the book is part of Taschen's Basic Architecture series that presents life and work of internationally renowned architects with approximately 120 photographs, sketches and drafts. The series has been edited by German art historian Peter Gössel.
Explore a unique blend of structure and surroundings in this essential architectural introduction to Richard Neutra, pioneer of a particularly holistic brand of modernism which incorporated the ragged lines of a landscape as much as the sleek surfaces and pared down geometries of 20th-century cool.
