Monocle 24 Visit Richard Neutra's Residences in Los Angeles

In the latest episode of Section D, Monocle 24's weekly review of design, architecture and craft, the team visit Richard Neutra's iconic modernist Neutra VDL Studio residential complex and Residences in Los Angeles. Though Modernism has often been criticised for imposing universal rules on people and areas, it was Neutra's intense client focus that won him acclaim.

His highly personal and profoundly more flexible variant of Modernism created a series of private homes that were, and are, highly sought after. His architecture of simple geometry and airy steel and glass came to stand for an entire era of American architectural design. In addition, the team also hear from Madrid, where an exhibition has opened charting the history of 'coming second in architecture', and speak to Swiss Industrial designer Yves Béhar.
