Richard Nuetra: A Man Ahead of His Time

Richard Nuetra was born in Austria on April 8, 1892 and moved to the United States in 1923. He became a naturalized citizen in 1929, and worked briefly for famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright. Eventually he became famous for a style you’ll all recognize, and it became known as the Neutra Design.

His design popularity hit its apex in the 60’s and is still widely emulated today.

As you look at these designs, remember what most architecture looked like back in the early 20th century, or maybe the house you grew up in. This is decidedly different. The open spaces, the crisp lines, the glass, the airy and breezy feel, I love it.

Let’s take a look. Click on a photo, then scroll through the collection:

If I could have any house I wanted it would be a Neutra house. Love everything about it. How about you? Anyway, Richard Nuetra was certainly a man ahead of his time, but we’ve just about caught up, right?
