The story of Richard Neutra's life is, in many ways, the story of modern architecture. In his lifetime, Neutra experienced the buoyant struggles of the movement's early years, the heady excesses of its mid-century ascendancy, and the strains of its slow demise. Through his study of Richard Neutra, the most distinguished architect to have worked on the west coast from the 1920s to the 1960s, Thomas Hines explores the efforts of the modernists to find new forms and meaning for their work in the twentieth century.
