Houses designed by Modernist architect Richard Neutra aren't impossible to find. There are three others in the same Bel-Air neighborhood as this one, which is known as the Hammerman House for its first owners. There has not been another restored Neutra of this size on the market in at least five years, according to area realty agents. The sellers bought the 1954 house as a restoration project. It has changed hands only twice.

If you like the cool geometry of classic modern furniture and want something fresher than the European standards, check out some newly reissued designs by architect Richard Neutra, who came to Los Angeles from Vienna in 1925 and worked here until his death in 1970. The revival was sparked by designer Terry Phipps, who rented the Neutra family's guest house in Silver Lake eight years ago and furnished it with a few of the architect's own chairs and tables.

Here's an unusual way to celebrate the centennial of the birth of a creative genius: Get a wrecking ball and demolish one of his creations; then, open a joyful exhibition to praise him. Odd, yes. But, it's precisely the sequence of events at UCLA in its effort to mark the life of Richard Neutra (1892-1970), the Viennese-born, Los Angeles-based architect who ranks among the greatest International Style designers of the 20th Century.

Richard Neutra, a pillar of 20th century Modernism, is known for his sleek, glass-sheathed designs that take advantage, to beautiful effect, of the surrounding natural landscape. The Kaufmann house in Palm Springs, commissioned by Pittsburgh department store magnate Edgar J. Kaufmann, was built in 1946 and is considered one of the Viennese-born architect's greatest works. Its sleek form, sliding panels and glass-and-stone aesthetic helped shape the postwar Modernism movement.
