The Neutra Institute for Survival Through Design
The Neutra Institute for Survival Through Design, a 501c3 private foundation, takes its name from the title of a 1954 book by world famous architect Richard Neutra. He argued that our very survival demanded well researched designs that served health and wellbeing. Accordingly:
Surviving in the climate crisis through well-researched design that helps humanity and the planet thrive.
We preserve and use the Neutra legacy to promote creative research and design that benefits people and the planet.
