The powerful simplicity of his forms has always seemed to me, to represent an understanding far greater than that of the built environment alone. A few weeks ago, we had a rare opportunity to meet and talk with the master, thanks to a generous offer from <a href="http://archinect.com/schools/cover/7374/california-state-polytechnic-university-pomona" target="_blank">Cal Poly Pomona</a> and <a href="http://www.11dot1.com" target="_blank">Axel Schmitzberger</a>, during Ando's brief visit to Los Angeles to collect his <a href="http://www.csupomona.edu/~arc/images/news/ando.jpg" target="_blank">2012 Richard Neutra Award</a>. So, <a href="http://archinect.com/people/cover/1812010/orhan-ayy-ce" target="_blank">Orhan</a>, <a href="http://archinect.com/people/cover/200410/alexander-walter" target="_blank">Alex</a>, <a href="http://archinect.com/people/cover/2566394/kaori-walter" target="_blank">Kaori</a> and I headed out to <a href="http://www.neutra-vdl.org" target="_blank">Neutra's VDL House</a> in Silver Lake, on a chilly afternoon in late March, for a brief, yet memorable, chat.</p> https://archinect.com/features/article/72721/neutra-s-vdl-house-v-hard-times Neutra's VDL House; v.
