The Neutra VDL Studio and Residences (1932-1965) of famed modernist architect Richard Neutra is owned by the Cal Poly Pomona Foundation and is under the stewardship of the College of Environmental Design (ENV) at Cal Poly Pomona. The primary mission of the College with respect to VDL is: to use the house as an educational resource for ENV students and faculty, to preserve and maintain the property, and to host cultural programs that will strengthen the facility's mission as a community resource. The VDL House is the only Neutra residence that is accessible to designers and the community at large. As such the house is a critically important resource for visitors to learn about the life and architectural career of Richard Neutra. The house is also an asset for research and scholarly activities that focus on: historic preservation of Modernist buildings, sustainability and material technologies, and interpretations of the Neutra legacy. Currently the house is open for tours, given by Cal Poly Pomona architectural students, every Saturday.  The museum's resident curator/director is Sarah Lorenzen R.A., Associate Professor of Architecture at Cal Poly Pomona.
