Overheard

“The bourgeois couples who lived in Richard Neutra’s

mid-twentieth-century steel and glass pavilions in California

may at times have drunk too much, squabbled,

been insincere and overwhelmed by anxiety,

but at least their buildings spoke to them of honesty and ease,

of a lack of inhibition and a faith in the future.”

 

Alain de Botton on the
Edgar J. Kaufmann House in Palm Springs, CA.
