Taschen collects the landmark architect's 300 buildings

Taschen has collected all the great work architect Richard Neutra has done in this country — including nearly 300 private homes, schools and public buildings — and compiled them into a 464-page hardcover tome aptly titled Neutra Complete Works. Born in Vienna, Neutra settled in the US in the early 1920s after initially studying under Adolf Loos. In addition to working for Frank Lloyd Wright, Neutra joined colleague Rudolph Schindler and soon laid the foundation to a California twist on American mid-century modernism. His buildings and design style were impeccable, drawing inspiration from post-war architecture combined with a desire to internalize nature into a structures’ interiors — his signature glass plated walls hang over magnificent views, and invited nature indoors. The Taschen book includes 1,000+ images captured by world renowned photographers including Julius Schulman. Filled with endless buildings that have indelibly changed the style of architecture forever, his contribution to this field can be viewed throughout the hardcover. Pick up Neutra Complete Works for $70.
