Dion Neutra, son of modernist architect Richard Neutra and an architect in his own right, died back in November at the age of 93. He championed his father’s legacy and fought for decades to preserve the elder Neutra’s iconic homes, which were noted for their minimalist aesthetic of glass, steel, concrete and wood, and for the way they incorporated the Southern California outdoors. Shortly before he fell ill, Dion also helped produce a play by Tom Lazarus called The Princes of Kings Road about Richard Neutra and fellow architect Rudolf Schindler’s relationship. Members of the architecture and preservationist community will gather this Sunday to celebrate Dion’s contributions to Los Angeles’ built environment.
