Richard Neutra (1892-1970) is arguably one of the most important architects of the Modernist era. He is famous for taking the needs of his clients and marrying architectural unity to nature.

He is also widely critized for being too rigid with his structural form and his use of cheap materials. I, personally, am quite fond of these natural components that ultimately meld the relative safety of the inner sanctum with the insecurity and beauty of the outside world.

Here is a slideshow of Neutra's innovative work as it originally appeared in Architectural Digest.
