The Neutra medal recognizes the contributions that Richard Neutra, an acclaimed modern architect and former Cal Poly Pomona lecturer, made to the practice of architecture in the areas of research and design as well as to reward individuals who have dedicated their careers toward researching and developing new environments in which to work, live and play.
Neutra was one of the most influential architects of the modernist era. In 1969, he served as a professor at Cal Poly Pomona during a joint appointment with the Architecture, Landscape Architecture and Urban and Regional Planning departments. He passed away in 1970.
