Austrian architects Stefan Rutzinger and Kristina Schinegger are also in residence at Schindler's MacKay apartments for six months, researching repeating objects that can be stacked to create new structures. They practice in Vienna under the name Soma, with a Brasilian architect, and their first project is a tiered landscaping project for a local school.
We drove over to Neutra's VDL Research House in Silverlake, where the austrian architect is now buried along with his wife and son. Tours are given by architecture students from Cal Poly Pomona where Neutra used to teach.
