Richard Neutra Encounters with Latin America
Richard Neutra, an iconic figure of architectural modernity, particularly well-known for his glamourous California houses, had another less visible facet: his concern for social architecture. This book presents Neutra's interest in and contacts with Latin America, paying particular attention to his designs for schools and hospitals in Puerto Rico. The author explores Neutra's connections with Latin American architects through his travels and the importance of his publications in the region. More importantly, she examines the impact these contacts had on Neutra and his later built work in the United States.
The research is based on archival documents and the book includes transcripts of talks and interviews Neutra gave in Rio de Janeiro, Caracas, Lima and Mexico City.
