 Neutra's Kaufmann House For Sale, MINUS SPACE, Brooklyn

Commissioned by Edgar J. Kaufmann Sr., the Pittsburgh department store magnate who had commissioned Frank Lloyd Wright about a decade earlier to build Fallingwater in Pennsylvania, the house was designed by Richard Neutra in 1946 as a desert retreat in Palm Springs, California.  The house’s current owners plan to auction the house at Christie’s in New York in May 2008.  Its presale estimate is $15 to $25 million.
