The Neutra's Kronish House: destruction or salvation?

Kronish House

By copying the letter to the right and emailing it to mayorandcitycouncil@beverlyhills.org you are supportive of saving the Kronish and repurposing it to a NEUTRA LIBRARY; a benign quasi-public use that will allow visitors to experience an authentic Neutra both inside and out; save an icon, and provide a use for the public to gain knowledge about the Neutra's Practice. SAVE THIS FROM DEMOLITION!

Below is the text of the letter you'll copy and paste into an email and send to the Beverly Hills Mayor and City Council:

To Mayor and City Council, City of Beverly Hills

SAVE THE KRONISH HOUSE

As you'll recall, your body responded to the crisis by postponing demolition , and asking your planning department to craft a long awaited preservation ordinance.

Many organizations and individuals have since been working ceaselessly, apparently in vain, to try to find a saviour to supplement individual donations being collected by the Neutra Institute. Read the petition signed so far by over 1000 individuals and counting, from the entire world, reminiscent of the 650 letters held up during the council meeting on August 2nd.

As we count the 'borrowed time' up now, it's become clear that the solution has to lie closer to home after all. You could make Beverly Hills a world class favorite!

The city of Beverly Hills needs to step up to the plate and ACQUIRE THIS PROPERTY AS A PUBLIC ASSET!

Buy these people out and reconstitute this to THE NEUTRA LIBRARY IN BEVERLY HILLS

Partner with a local museum, if necessary, to operate this site as a supplement to other similar historic assets you currently have, with low key visitation permitted by appointment, encouraging the appreciation of the architecture of the mid century, and BECOMING THE HERO OF COUNTLESS THOUSANDS!

The Neutra Institute, Dion Neutra, project architect, and others pledge to continue their efforts to find funds to at least partially repay this 'loan' put forth by the city, to allow this restoration project the time it needs, to come together on this secluded site.

Thank you,

[your name and city]
