Lovell 'Health' House - Richard Neutra

Richard Neutra's Lovell 'Health' House.

Revolutionary when it was built in 1929 Los Angeles by Neutra, a recent Austraian émigré excited with the methods and materials of American industrialisation -- he boasted that all the 'parts' came straight from a catalogue -- but perhaps difficult to see now with fresh eyes. Too much bad imitation has made the original seem somewhat jaded to today's eyes.

A 'companion' to this one, the 'Lovell Beach House,' was built by Neutra's Austrian companion (and fellow Frank Lloyd Wright enthusiast) Rudolph Schindler.
