Explore Neutra’s Neighborhood in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Silver Lake.
This tour consists of both a neighborhood walking tour and an interior home tour of the Neutra VDL Studio and Residences.
The walking tour will feature six Neutra works in the neighborhood, including the Neutra Office Building. The walking tours will be guided by Barbara Lamprecht, author and teacher in architectural history. Guests will get a special exterior tour of Neutra’s Reunion House (1949), just declared an L.A. historic monument in June 2021.
For the VDL Studio and Residences tour, guests will enjoy a guided tour by Noam Saragosti, the resident director of the Neutra VDL Studio and Residences. Explore and discover how Neutra created this indoor-outdoor, live-work environment within a small urban space. This modernist masterpiece was Richard Neutra’s family home and his work studio for nearly three decades.
Guests will be provided a gourmet, boxed lunch at Silver Lake Meadows, directly across the street from Neutra VDL.
Don’t miss this exclusive opportunity to see the most concentrated collection of Neutra works in the world.
The Neutra VDL Studio and Residences is under the stewardship of the College of Environmental Design (ENV) and Department of Architecture (CPP ARC) at Cal Poly Pomona. It was named a National Historic Landmark in 2009.
Noam Saragosti is the resident director of the Neutra VDL Studio and Residences, and a lecturer in Architecture at Cal Poly Pomona. He holds a Master of Architecture from Harvard University and a Bachelor of Architecture from Cal Poly Pomona.
Proceeds from the tours go toward the Neutra VDL Research House, a property of the Cal Poly Pomona Foundation, a chartered not-for-profit 501(c)3 organization.
