Participant(s) Bio
Actress Kelly Lynch ("Drugstore Cowboy," "Roadhouse," "The L Word"), is an acknowledged champion of mid-century architecture and preservation. Ms. Lynch and her husband, screenwriter/producer Mitch Glazer, have restored both Richard Neutra's Oyler House in Lone Pine, CA (1959), and John Lautner's Harvey House in Los Angeles (1950). The two were given House Beautiful's Giants of Design Award for Preservation in 2001, and were patrons of MoCA's Rudolf Schindler exhibit. Ms. Lynch, who serves on the Lautner Foundation, and is a founding member of the Neutra VDL Research Site Planning Committee, spoke at both the 2009 Palm Springs Art Museum's modernist architecture symposium as well as the Hammer Museum's symposium in conjunction with "Between Earth and Heaven: The architecture of John Lautner." Most recently, at the 34th Annual California Preservation Conference in April 2009, Ms. Lynch moderated the panel "Restoration and Programmatic Potentials of the Richard and Dion Neutra VDL Studios/Residences." Ms. Lynch is featured in recent documentaries on Julius Schulman, Pierre Koenig, and John Lautner. Visit for information on the Neutra VDL House.
