Published by Taschen, Schindler provides a compact insight into the career of architect Rudolph Michael Schindler (1887–1953). Austrian-born Schindler emigrated to the U.S., where he created pioneering works of modernist and cubist architecture, such as the Wolfe House and Falk Apartment Building. Written by architect James Steele, the book is part of Taschen's Basic Architecture series that presents life and work of internationally renowned architects with approximately 120 photographs, sketches and drafts. The series has been edited by German art historian Peter Gössel.
Meet Rudolph Michael Schindler, the Austrian-born architect who combined Cubism, the International Style, and Californian Modernism into “space architecture.” Unnoticed for decades, his structures are today hailed as landmarks of the Modernist movement. This collection presents Schindler’s most important projects through crisp photography, floor plans, texts, and maps.
