Step into the past and present of Mariners Medical Arts Building, a midcentury masterpiece by Richard Neutra. Imagine a world where medical offices were intimidating, lacking light, and nature. Neutra dared to dream differently. In 1963, 11 visionary doctors commissioned a low-profile oasis in Newport Beach. Three buildings, adorned with vertical metal louvers, embraced privacy. Tropical plants and reflecting pools whispered calmness. Yet, neglect and misguided renovations almost erased Neutra's vision.
Fast forward to today, Burnham-Ward Properties, inspired by historic photos and drawings, undertook a multimillion-dollar restoration. Led by Steve Thorp, they revived the architectural gem, honoring its significance in Newport Beach and the nation.

The @jeudepaumeparis recently presented the first exhibition devoted to photographer Frank Horvat (1928-2020). The curator Virginie Chardin concentrated on the first 15 years of Horvat’s career, from 1950 to 1965. Horvat’s natural staging transformed into sophisticated compositions in shots taken for British Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar.
The unique ensemble of photographs, as well as numerous fashion magazines, shed light on the context in which these images were created: a time when the rise of ready-to-wear and the evolution of women’s social status profoundly modified the canons of the genre.
