While checking building permits in Pasadena sometime back, I came across a Neutra as architect building permit on Glen Oaks Blvd. 1500 block. The permit however was cancelled and some other architects design was built there. The site, hilltop, 360 degree view ! Rose bowl , city of Pasadena and down town LA +++
I would love to see those unbuilt plans.

It appears that Neutra was already in the business of selling plans back in 1946. These plans come from the "California Plan Book". Other well known architects like Frey and Schindler were included. I've added a selection of the modern plans from the book to my Flickr page here:

I don't see a lot of value in old architectural plans. A great home can be somewhat replicated with a floor plans and existing photos documented in Neutra's work. Existing plans would need to be altered to accommodate current building codes anyway. I don't see much money being made from this exercise.

Well it is happening. A plan was just submitted to subdivide the property of the Sondern-Adler residence designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in Kansas City to build one Neutra's case study plans. It effectively makes the Sondern House sit in the back yard of the new Neutra. This is not going to be a happy story.
