Neutra Run/Walk for Health - April 27

Neutra Run/Walk for Health - April 27

Richard Neutra founded this firm in 1926 while he was still living in the Schindler House. Shortly thereafter, came the birth of his second son, Dion. At about this time, he was working on his first major project the Jardinette Apartments (1927) in Hollywood. A couple of years later, the Lovell Health House (1929). After a distinguished 40 years, he invited his architect son in as partner and vice president in 1965. Dion has carried on the firm since his father's death in 1970.

 

In 2012, we marked Richard Neutra's 120th birthday with the first 'Running'. That Earth Day, April 22 we marked 42 years since the first Earth Day was celebrated on April 22, 1970, just a week after Neutra's death. He would have been so proud! In the aftermath of our fledgling day of events, of Earth Day 2012, the Institute is looking ahead to continue to sponsor 'Neutra run-walks for HEALTH' on the Sundays closest to Earth Day each year, so we're taking orders NOW.
