Stuttgart 1927. 29x22. IV+80 pp. 75 photos and renderings and 27 plans, sections, etc. Printed wrappers, in rarely seen pictorial dust jacket.

(Die Baubücher, 1).

After working with Mendelsohn, Neutra moved to the United States in 1923. "Wie baut Amerika" chronicles his search for an architectural vision based upon American construction and transportation practices, its central theme being the emergence of a new beauty conditioned by American technological promises. The message is brought home with a variety of illustrative examples, including in-depth studies of the Palmer House hotel in Chicago by Holabird and Roche and a terraced house row by Schindler in La Jolla. A key source to the role of Functionalist aesthetics as a link between rationalized technology and modern architectural ideals.
