Schindler
by David Gebhard

First edition (hardcover) of this first in-depth book on architect Rudolph Schindler, published in London in 1971.

The Los Angeles-based architect R.M. Schindler (1887 Vienna – 1953 Los Angeles) is regarded today as one of the central figures of the Modern movement. Trained in Vienna under Otto Wagner and Adolf Loos, Schindler then migrated to Los Angeles under the apprenticeship of Frank Lloyd Wright. Surrounded by a clientele of progressive thinkers in the emerging intellectual culture of Hollywood, Schindler created a radical and intensely personal architectural conception, resulting in some of the seminal works of the twentieth century.
Gebhard’s Schindler, first issued in 1971, is the only full-length account of Schindler’s prolific yet unfulfilled career. Illustrated heavily throughout with photographs of Schindler’s buildings and interiors, his plans, schemes and projections.
Chapters are: Preface by Henry-Russell Hitchcock; New worlds and old; American apprenticeship; The years with Wright; Opportunity: California in the twenties; Theories in practice; The making of a personal style; Schindler’s ‘de Stijl’; The depression: a new clientele; Living space; Modern versus Moderne; Business commissions; The uses of wood; The final phase; Schindler’s place in architecture.

Charles Moore said, “David Gebhard’s book about Rudolph Schindler was, for me, the most moving story of an architect that I have read since I was astonished at an early age by Frank Lloyd Wright’s autobiography.”

Includes a preface by Henry-Russell Hitchcock.
