Neutra Home Tour & LA Blogger Event

Calling all LA bloggers! There's a cool fundraiser coming up to save a piece of LA's architectural history and it's cheap at $10 a ticket. It's also an excuse to meet up with each other & talk shop.

This fundraiser will help save a Richard Neutra creation, the Neutra VDL House in Silverlake.

First, let me give props to Ron Woodson & Jaime Rummerfield of W&R Design. They designed one of his homes below, which is in Hollywood.

Isn't it gorgeous? They are the team who introduced me to Neutra's work.

In 1990 Richard Neutra's wife Dione, left the VDL Research Compound to the Cal Poly Pomona College of Environmental Design and the architectural landmark is in dire need of funds to maintain the property. $30,000 must be raised by October of this year.
This is the home below.

100% of the admission fee goes towards keeping the property from being sold to a private party.

Here's the details...

LA Design Blogger Meet-up and Neutra House Tour! (you don't have to post much about design, just like it!)

WHEN Saturday, June 21st 11am-ish (exact times TBD)

WHERE Neutra VDL Research House

THE PLAN We'll meet-up at the Neutra house and take simultaneous tours in small groups starting at different locations on the property. Afterwards we can go for lunch somewhere in the Silverlake area. Suggestions for lunch are welcome!
