The mid-century modern master, Richard Neutra was well known for his cutting edge modernism. Since Julius Shulman immortalized his houses in his iconic photographs, Neutra's bright, airy homes have widely been seen as the pinacle of modernism and desirability.

However, all that is about to change thanks to a new partnership between his son, Dion Neutra, the Neutra Office and California Architecture Conservancy, who have enabled regular Joe-sixpack license the right to build their very own Neutra-designed home. Dion Neutra and the Neutra Office will even supervise the construction to boot, while keeping it up to modern spec. They are promising a selection of plans to choose from, both built and unbuilt. Although prices are strictly upon request, The Agency - the California real estate outfit selling the plans - assure potential buyers that it will be "the price of what one would customarily pay for an architect to design and render supervising architectural services."

So if you're wondering what to get that Neutra fan in your life for Christmas, start saving your pennies and contact Billy Rose at The Agency for more information on how to proceed.
