WIE BAUT AMERIKA?

Stuttgart: Julius Hoffmann, 1927. First Edition. Wraps. A major work of modernist architecture, Neutra's first book ("How America Builds?") documents how advances in manufacturing were impacting architectural construction techniques and designs. Includes a case study of the modern hotel, describing its complexities, social and political significance, and the contractual and technical systems required to get a project of this scale built. Neutra's fascination with American reached full bloom with his emigration there in 1923. After a brief stint working with Frank Lloyd Wright, he made a lasting mark in Southern California with his striking mid-century residential houses. From the library of Margaret Staal-Kropholler (1891-1966), the first woman in the Netherlands to practice as a professional architect, with her bookplate to the front pastedown. Quarto: [78] p. with the publisher's ads. Original printed brown paper wrappers. Minor bump to the bottom corner, with some general toning and wear along the extremities; otherwise very good. Very good. Item #73948
