Explore Neutra’s Neighborhood in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Silver Lake.
This tour consists of two interior home tours, Neutra VDL and Reunion House, and a neighborhood walking tour.
Guests will begin with a guided tour for the VDL Studio and Residences with Noam Saragosti, the resident director of the Neutra VDL Studio and Residences. Explore and discover how Neutra created this indoor-outdoor, live-work environment within a small urban space. This modernist masterpiece was Richard Neutra’s family home and his work studio for nearly three decades.
The walking tour will feature five (5) Neutra works in the neighborhood. The walking tours will be guided by Dr. Barbara Lamprecht, an architectural historian and Neutra scholar. Guests will end their tour with a special interior tour of Neutra’s Reunion House (1949), just declared an L.A. historic monument in June 2021.
The Reunion House is under the stewardship of the Neutra Institute for Survival Through Design. This property has rarely been shown. This will be the first public showing since its declaration as an L.A. historic monument.
Don’t miss this exclusive opportunity to see the most concentrated collection of Neutra works in the world.
The Neutra VDL Studio and Residences is under the stewardship of the College of Environmental Design (ENV) and Department of Architecture (CPP ARC) at Cal Poly Pomona. It was named a National Historic Landmark in 2009.
Noam Saragosti is the resident director of the Neutra VDL Studio and Residences, and a lecturer in Architecture at Cal Poly Pomona. He holds a Master of Architecture from Harvard University and a Bachelor of Architecture from Cal Poly Pomona.
Proceeds from the tours go toward the Neutra VDL Research House, a property of the Cal Poly Pomona Foundation, a chartered not-for-profit 501(c)3 organization.
