Save the Neutra House

Richard Neutra is one of the primary architects responsible for the modern home movement. Unfortunately his own residence (VDL Research House) located in the Silverlake neighborhood of Los Angeles is in a state of disrepair.

This is a sad commentary on a city and a neighborhood that prides itself on modern architecture. The “Neutra” name is used to sell homes throughout the area but the most “Neutra” of all homes has been left in decay.

We are now a culture of ten minute propaganda that lasts for several years. Fashionable gossip creates heroes and zeros because it benefits someone somewhere in the background and nobody asks anymore questions. Watching the 2300 E Silver Lake Blvd. dissolve is a regretful development. Not everything is replaceable. You can help to save this cultural Landmark. By spreading the word and mobilizing the community.

This group is doing their part to restore this home to it’s original state.
