This classic documentary tells the parallel story of Richard Neutra’s own home, in Los Angeles, where he lived and work with this family, for nearly 40 years. Designed in 1932, and expanded with a garden house in 1939, this modern masterpiece was destroyed by fire in 1963, then redesigned in collaboration with his son Dion Neutra, also an architect. Granted status as a National Historic Landmark, in January 2017, Neutra’s VDL Research House remains an active centre of research, perpetuating the modern dream.
