Saving Neutra’s VDL House

neutravdl_richardneutra.jpg

In 1932, the Dutch architect Richard Neutra built this villa in Sliver Lake, LA, California. After some years a garden and a solarium were added along with two new floors on the existing prefab basement structure. The house is in its 70’s now and a campaign is being raised by Cal Poly Pomona College of Environmental Design, The VDL Advisory Board and Dr. Raymond Neutra to help fund the renovation of the building. It is threatened to be closed, possibly sold to a private party and lost for any educational or public cause. Best of luck to the fund raisers.
