Richard Neutra tends to get all the credit for his architectural projects while his collaborators often go unmentioned ("Neutra, Big Man on Campus," by Cathy Curtis, So SoCal, Feb 7). I was his partner for the last 30 years of his life and participated in many of the projects for which he gets solo credit--including the auditorium pictured with Curtis' article. Also, his partner, Robert Alexander, who introduced him to that campus, should have been included in that photo caption.

In the early 1950s, when noted emigre architect Richard Neutra met with trustees and faculty of fledgling Orange Coast College, he may have struck them as a visitor from another planet. From his Einstein-like shock of hair to his grandiloquent pronouncements, uttered in a thick Viennese accent, Neutra had little in common with the crew-cut, gee-whiz world of postwar suburbia.

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.

As a young architect struggling to survive the Great Depression, Robert Alexander had a very personal understanding of the need for affordable housing: He couldn't find any. "The 1930s were like the 1980s in the terrible shortage of affordable places to live," Alexander said. "People were truly desperate." That sense of desperation led Alexander to the drawing board where the idea for a new community of affordable housing was born.

OPINION
April 20, 1997 | Thomas S. Hines, Thomas S. Hines, a professor of history and architecture at UCLA, is the author of "Richard Neutra and the Search for Modern Architecture" (UC Press). His most recent book is "William Faulkner and the Tangible Past: The Architecture of Yoknapatawpha."
The optimum use of Chavez Ravine has been a significant and vexing issue for nearly 50 years. At mid-century, the area was a pleasant, hidden, semi-rural Mexican American Brigadoon that, nonetheless, offered an ideal target for intensified "modernization." In the early '50s, a plan for using it as an innovative housing project became the victim of McCarthyite cold warriors, who killed it because it was "socialistic" and "un-American."

Money Woes: The San Diego Repertory Theatre reports it has not met the second phase of its "Keep the Lights On" campaign begun a year ago and is $340,000 short of the $850,000 it had targeted to raise by now. Rep managing director Adrian Stewart said in a press release that $150,000 was needed by Nov. 7 and $200,000 by the end of December. "I Ain't Yo Uncle," a revisionist view by Robert Alexander of "Uncle Tom's Cabin," will open Wednesday as scheduled, regardless of the crisis.
