Neutra: Complete Works Book

£50

Description

Indoor-outdoor flow meets clean, crisp modernism in the structures of Austrian-American Richard Neutra, master of postwar architecture whose cool, sleek style synthesized technology with nature. This monograph compiles his complete works—nearly 300 private homes, schools, and public buildings—illustrated by over 1,000 photographs, including those of Julius Shulman.


Originally from Vienna, Richard Neutra came 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, 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.
