Richard Neutra in Berlin allows for a long-overdue, rightful reassessment of Neutra’s early works. Alongside historical sources, it collects countless new and unpublished documents about the houses and their first residents. 
Austrian-born architect Richard Neutra (1892–1970) finished his architectural studies in the midst of the First World War, and worked in Switzerland and Germany for a few years before moving to the United States in 1923. Settling in California after working briefly for Frank Lloyd Wright, Neutra became identified with a West Coast variant on mid-century modern architecture: rigorously geometric buildings designed in the International Style of Neutra’s European training, with an open, airy, flexible atmosphere suitable to Neutra’s new California home.
