Interview with Mike Dorsey, Director of The Oyler House: Richard Neutra’s Desert Retreat

You may remember us late last year writing a piece on a new documentary titled The Oyler House: Richard Neutra’s Desert Retreat by director Mike Dorsey. I’ve been back and forward emailing him, checking in on the project whenever I can, so I thought it would be a nice touch to hold a little Q&A session with Mike and get his thoughts on the project whenever I can, so I thought it would be …

He had a deep admiration for classical tradition and …
