Central Library Presents Architect Dion Neutra Nov. 10
posted on 10/20/2015.

The Huntington Beach Library is pleased to present a visit by architect Dion Neutra, returning to the building he completed 40 years ago. Originally, it was to be Dion and his father, acclaimed modernist Richard Neutra, to design the facility together, but the untimely passing of Richard in 1970 meant Dion would undertake the project by himself. 

Dion will share his insights, challenges (of which there were many), and memories of what the Huntington Beach Central Library and Cultural Center was like then, and later, plus other highlights from his career.  Dion will also be signing copies of his book, “The Neutras – Then & Later”, which will be available for purchase.

Solar chimneys are passive solar ventilation systems. Shafts connect the interior and exterior of the building. The functioning can be improved by glazing and using thermal mass materials.  Learn more about solar.
