Update: Neutra House Still Under Threat
The Kronish House in Beverly Hills, California. From Mark Angeles via Unlimited Style

We reported last month that community pressure swayed the owners of Richard Neutra’s Kronish House to temporarily postpone plans to flatten the iconic home. However the looming October demolition date is quickly approaching. With the slogan ‘A Solution may be at Hand’ the Neutra Institute has started a National Fund Raising Campaign in hopes of converting the Kronish House into the Neutra Library.

Numerous steps to save this icon are currently underway including an ambitious $16 million fundraising campaign, you can donate via PayPal, and an online petition that is available for everyone to sign.

With only 38 days left to save the house before wrecking day, the Neutra Institute is asking to help change the history of preservation. More details can be found at the Neutra Institute’s website.
