Wallace Neff's Bubble Houses

Hosted by

One of the founding builders of Los Angeles was Wallace Neff, an architect based in Pasadena who built houses for LA's rich and famous in the Spanish Colonial Revival style. But he envisioned housing thousands of less affluent people in spherical buildings made of concrete and air. David Weinberg tells the story of the bubble house dream that burst.

David Weinberg produced this story for KCRW's Independent Producer Project, which supports the work of independent media producers.
