Read Raymond Neutra’s interview with All Night Menu exploring his relationship to Los Angeles.

“My mother and father were immigrants and they had dinner parties… The visitors would be people like Alvar Aalto and Roberto Burle Marx, the Brazilian landscape architect. There were all kinds of people in the arts from Los Angeles, like Ray and Charles Eames, mixed in with some family friends. So I was exposed to a lot of high energy people who had purposeful lives. That made a big impression about what a life could be.”
