Biography

American architect and consultant in the modernist / International style who worked originally with his father, Richard Neutra (1892–1970). He became president of the Neutra company upon his father's death in 1970.

As of 16 July 2011, he began writing a blog dedicated to the preservation of the Kronish House in Beverly Hills, California, currently under threat of demolition. Other projects Dion championed include the Cyclorama Building at Gettysburg on the Gettysburg battlefield, Pennsylvania, and the Mariners Medical Arts Building in Newport Beach, California. He was also concerned about the future of the Los Angeles County Hall of Records since the Records Department had been relocated to Norwalk, California.
