Picture 1 The Los Angeles Conservancy and Dion Neutra are asking that anyone concerned about the loss of the Richard Neutra-designed Kronish House in Beverly Hills, CA contact the office of the Mayor and City Council by Thursday, July 28, 2011 and have your friends and colleagues do the same. Details of what to do after the jump...

Please convey the following points, in your own words as much as possible:

• You are aware of the potential demolition of the Kronish (pronounced CROW-nish) House by Richard Neutra.

• The house is a significant work by a master architect and an important piece of Beverly Hills history.

• The Kronish House is one of only three Neutra designs ever built in Beverly Hills, and it is the only one that remains intact.

• The City of Beverly Hills has no protections for its historic structures -- there isn't even a process to review the planned demolition.

• Urge the Mayor and the City Council to do whatever they can to at least delay the demolition until other options can be adequately considered, including relocation or finding another buyer.

If you live or work in Beverly Hills, please identify yourself as a constituent and include your address.

E-mail: mayorandcitycouncil@beverlyhills.org, please copy mvavala@laconservancy.org

Phone: (310) 285-1013

Many thanks to everyone who has already called or e-mailed -- it makes a real difference. Hopefully this important home can be saved from the jaws of destruction...but only with your help! For additional information, follow the link.
