The Neutra Institute for Survival Through Design Student Packages

(Rev. 11/21/07). The Institute now offers student packages with reproductions taken from original project documents. In some cases the quality of reproduction is not ideal; but in most cases the drawings are roughly to scale, so missing information can be inferred or imputed.

With that understanding, and the fact that this information is not available in any other way for comparable cost, we believe these packages offer a good value as well as a source of enjoyment for anybody taking a deep interest in Neutra architecture. Please read also disclaimer.

Conditions of Use

Before ordering, please read and agree to the following conditions:

  1. These drawings are strictly for student study use and may not be used to construct, modify, maintain, or upgrade any part of an actual building.

  2. These documents cannot be shared with any other student or class. Single-user license. Since the Institute depends on income from these sales to sustain its Web site and render the other services it offers, each use must stand on its own. Other students must order their own copies.

By ordering a student package, you agree to these conditions.
