“自信さえあれば、万事はそれでうまく行く。文壇も社会も、みんな自信だけの問題だと、小生痛感している。その自信を持たしてくれるのは、自分の仕事の出来栄えである。循環する理論である。だから自信のあるものが勝ちである。” 太宰治 虚構の春 (via tily)

“きょう、日曜の雨、たいくつでたまらぬが、お金はなし、君のとこへも行けず、天候の不満を君に向けて爆破、どうだ、すこしは、ぎょっとしたか。” 太宰治 虚構の春 (via tily)

"Seventy-five years ago, in Los Angeles, with a no-interest loan from Dutch philanthropist Dr CH Van Der Leeuw, Viennese-American architect Richard Neutra built a radical "glass house" with rooftop and balcony gardens on Silverlake Boulevard. He called it the VDL Research house, after his benefactor. It was designed to accommodate his office and two families on a small 60 x 70 foot lot.

Seven years later, as his family expanded, he built a garden house on the back of the lot. This compact wing had walls that slid open onto a pocket garden to be shared by the addition and main house. In 1963 after a disastrous fire, that left unscathed only the 1940 Garden house and basement of the original wing, Richard and his son and partner Dion Neutra had a chance to redesign the main house. Two floors and a penthouse solarium were built on the original prefabricated basement structure. They applied what the practice had learned in the interim about sun louvers, water roofs, “nature-near”, and physiologically motivated design.

It is a place, which could tell many stories. Over a thirty-year period hundreds of projects on four continents were designed there. These included the country’s first modern school, many distinguished residences, and important public buildings. At mid century Neutra’s influence was pervasive. In 1949 a Time Magazine cover story characterized him as “second only to lordly Frank Lloyd Wright”. VDL saw the beginning of the careers of architects who came as apprentices to work there from all over the world including, among others Gregory Ain, Raphael Soriano and Donald Wexler. Photographer Julius Schulman’s career started with this office. VDL played host to cultural figures like Frank Lloyd Wright, Lazlo Moholy Nagy, Jorn Utson, Charles and Ray Eames; religious figures like Robert Schuler and J Krishnamurti; scientists like Rene Dubos and Linus Pauling; and to political figures and activists like John Anson Ford, Frank Wilkinson and Vice President Hubert Humphrey.”

We finally paid a visit to this special Neutra location this morning. While the original furnishings and objects were temporarily replaced with German items for fictional narrative purposes, nothing felt out of place and the experience was still very exciting. I can’t wait to visit when it’s original artifacts are back in their usual home!

“目の見えない人が村井俊輔の設計による建物をいくつか手ざわりで記憶していれば、手のひらであちこち触れるだけで、この教会も同じ建築家の仕事であるとわかるのではないか。” 『火山のふもとで』松家仁之(新潮社)

“うまくいった家はね、こちらが説明するときに使った言葉をクライアントが覚えてくれていて、訪ねてきたお客さんに、その言葉で自分の家を説明するようになる。われわれ建築家の言葉がいつしかそこに暮らす人たちの言葉になっている。そうすれば成功なんだよ” 『火山のふもとで』松家仁之(新潮社)
