location California, Palm Springs
function private house
contributed by haveacupoftea

This is an iconic house by Austrian modernist architect Richard Neutra, who immigrated to the USA in the early 1920s and worked briefly for Frank Lloyd Wright. He is considered part of the International Style modernist movement, and this house a regional variation. It has a cross shape and is very open, with glass walls and outdoor covered walkways. Julius Shulman became a reknowned architecture photographer through his work on this house. Edgar J. Kaufmann Sr. was a retail magnate and already owned Wright's famous Fallingwater. The house had been degraded through its successive owners but has been faithfully restored in the 1990s.
