Third Annual Neutra House Speakers Series starts October 13th

The Neutra House Architecture Speakers Series is bringing some of the best architects in California to Los Altos. Our series is attracting audiences from all around the Bay Area. Three of our speakers are coming up from Southern California.

The first speaker is Charles (Chuck) Davis, the senior partner of EHDD, an architecture firm in San Francisco. Chuck is going to talk about his design of the Monterrey Bay Aquarium and memories of working for his clients David and Lucile Packard. EHDD is also known for its expertise on sustainable design and designed the new building under construction on Second Street for the David and Lucile Packard Foundation.

Other speakers are: Rob Steinberg on his father’s legacy as an architect; Professor Thomas Hines, the author of definitive books on Richard Neutra; Craig Hartman of SOM; Steve Glenn, CEO of LivingHomes; and Ray Kappe. These talks are designed for the general public. Learn more at our website where you can purchase tax-deductible series tickets.

LACF 20 Years of Giving Covered by Town Crier

Without the identifying sign out front, the well-kept, historical house at 183 Hillview Ave. could be mistaken for just another quiet neighborhood residence. But the old abode is headquarters for a foundation with a diverse lineup of community-building services – from nurturing and funding non-profit groups, to offering mediation and leadership classes.

The Los Altos Community Foundation (LACF), in its 20th year, manages local residents’ donor-advised funds and disburses most of its annual $200,000 allocation from the Los Altos-based David and Lucile Packard Foundation to non-profit groups.
