Books Info:

Schindler free pdf Hailing from Vienna, Rudolph Michael Schindler (1887-1953), like his colleague Richard Neutra, emigrated to the US and applied his International Style techniques to the movement that would come to be known as California Modernism. Influenced by the work of Frank Lloyd Wright and taking cues from spatial notions found in cubism, he developed a singular style characterized by geometrical shapes, bold lines, and association of materials such as wood and concrete, as seen in his own Hollywood home (built in 1921-22) and the house he designed for P.M. Lovell in Newport Beach (1923-24). Basic Architecture features- Each title contains approximately 120 images, including photographs, sketches, drawings, and floor plans- Introductory essays explore the architect's life and work, touching on family and background as well as collaborations with other architects- The body presents the most important works in chronological order, with descriptions of client and/or architect wishes, construction problems (why some projects were never executed), and resolutions- The appendix includes a list of complete or selected works, biography, bibliography and a map indicating the locations of the architect's most famous buildings
