Dion Neutra was born in Los Angeles on October 8, 1926, the year the Neutra practice was formed by his famed architect father Richard Neutra. At the age of 11, Dion Neutra began his architectural apprenticeship at a drafting table in his father’s office. After having served in the US Navy in WWII, he studied for a year in Zurich and finally in 1950 graduated cum laude from USC with a BA in architecture. A few weeks later he passed the four-day State Board Architectural License Exam in one sitting, and became one of the youngest corporate members of the AIA at the age of 24. Since then the Neutra Practice has developed numbers of award-winning facilities: educational, medical, civic, recreational and residential. After the passing of Richard Neutra in 1970, Dion became firm president and continued to grow the practice, which in 2015, celebrated its 89th year. He has traveled widely, lecturing in numerous locations in California, Nevada, Washington, DC, Pennsylvania, Spain, Switzerland, Japan, Puerto Rico, France, Canada and the South. He also provided leadership for the non-profit Neutra Institute for Design under whose aegis he developed the NEUTRA INSTITUTE MUSEUM OF SILVER LAKE. The Museum has hosted some 30 shows and events since its founding in August, 2014. This is housed in the front portion of the Neutra Office Building, at 2379 Glendale Blvd. Los Angeles, California 90039. www.neutra.org
