Richard Neutra and the Search for Modern Architecture
New York: Rizzoli, 2005.
Fourth Edition. Hardcover.
Fourth Edition. The work was first published in 1982 by Oxford University Press and reprinted in a paperback edition in 1994 published by the University of California Press, followed by an Italian translation published by Electa in 2001. This is the First Printing of the Rizzoli Edition, with small corrections to the text and notes, but with the substance of the original edition remaining intact.
The story of Richard Neutra’s life is, in many ways, the story of modern architecture. He experienced the buoyant struggles of the movement’s early years and the heady excesses of its mid-century ascendance. In this study, Thomas Hines explores the efforts of Neutra and his modernist contemporaries to find the forms that would best express the meaning of the twentieth century.Item #901105
