Inverting Neutra


Bryony Roberts


“Inverting Neutra is an installation at Richard and Dion Neutra’s VDL House II (1932/1966) in Los Angeles that offers spatial inversion as a strategy for activating historic architecture… This project performs an inversion by turning the void spaces into distinct colored volumes, filled with hanging blue cords following the spacing of the stair module. Turning voids into volumes of color, this inversion both celebrates and subverts the existing architecture. The hanging cords move in the wind and in response to touch, creating a register of climate and movement through the house... The result is an interactive and dynamic installation that calls attention to the constantly shifting environmental and social activity in the house.” From the artist’s description
