Preserving Richard Neutra's VDL Studio/Residences in Los Angeles

Over the past thirty-five years, Raymond Richard Neutra, the youngest son of famous modernist architect Richard Neutra, has explored the world, connecting with his father’s buildings and creating relationships with their owners and occupants. Through his travels, Raymond had the opportunity to better understand his father’s international legacy.

On October 4, 2012 Triangle Modernist Houses will host Raymond Neutra, for a talk about one of his father’s famous American legacies and personal home, the VDL Studio/Residences in Los Angeles, California.  The VDL compound has seen ongoing efforts of restoration since the 1990s. Raymond will describe the philosophical issues encountered during the project as well as its current progress.
