In 1959, a government employee named Richard Oyler, living in the tiny desert town of Lone Pine, California, asked world-famous modern architect Richard Neutra to design his modest family home. To Oyler's surprise, Neutra agreed. Thus began an unlikely friendship that led to the design and construction of an iconic mid-century modern masterpiece. Considered the "father of California Modern Architecture," Time Magazine put Richard Neutra on their cover in 1949, ranking him second only to Frank Lloyd Wright among America's greatest architects. 'The Oyler House: Richard Neutra's Desert Retreat' explores how Neutra came to befriend this modest, small-town family, and how he was inspired by the site's stunning desert setting, which Neutra compared to the grandness of the mystical Gobi Desert. Now owned by the actress Kelly Lynch and her writer-producer husband Mitch Glazer, the post & beam-style home and it's exotic surroundings shine through beautiful 5K cinematography, and the story comes to life through interviews with Richard Oyler, Kelly Lynch, Neutra's sons, and well-known Los Angeles real estate agent Crosby Doe, who has represented homes by some of history's greatest modern architects.
