1947 Palm Springs House - Richard Neutra

A much loved Palm Springs, California, house by Richard Neutra, from 1947.

To earn a point, see if you can be the first to post the connection between this house, and Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater.

And for a bonus point, post the connection between the house and Ayn Rand. There is only one degree of separation in each case.

  1. Fallingwater & the Desert House were both designed and built for Kaufmanns. I'm not sure if one was for the Sr., and one for the Jr.
    Ayn Rand purchased a house by Neutra in the 1950's.

  2. Well, I messed up a bit on the Ayn Rand factoid. According to The Ayn Rand Institute:
    1944 - Moves into Von Sternberg house designed by Richard Neutra (July)

    I'll send myself to the back of the class now.

  3. Well done Joy. Correct, in the end, on all counts. Head back to the front of the class and take a bow. :-)
