“R. M. Schindler occupies a place of profound significance as an innovator within the history of twentieth-century architecture.
Recognized as a major figure for his contributions to modernism and to the history of architecture in Los Angeles, Schindler and his vigorous experimentalism continue to influence many architects today, especially those of a younger generation whose design approach demonstrates a kinship to that of Schindler. Schindler designed and built some of the century's most provocative build-ings, including the Kings Road House and the Philip Lovell Beach House, long considered foremost examples of early twentieth-century modernism and as innovative as the architecture of European contemporaries such as Le Corbusier and the architects of the Dutch De Stijl movement. The Architecture of R. M. Schindler, which accompanies a major exhibition at The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, spans Schindler's early years in Vienna, his period in the office of Frank Lloyd Wright, and his independent works from the late 1910s through the early 1950s.

Schindler's career has been the subject of an ongoing reassessment during recent years. His entire corpus of work has been the subject of an increasing interest and attention on the part of historians and architects that has accelerated during the past decade. This publication examines the theoretical and pragmatic underpinnings of Schindler's practice and considers points of commonality and difference with such figures as Wright and Richard Neutra, with whom Schindler had long-standing personal and professional associations, as well as with other architects of his own and of subsequent generations in Los Angeles. Building upon and extending the significant body of literature that now exists on Schindler, The Architecture of R. M. Schindler seeks to place him within a wider context as well as to shed new light on the extraordinary social and cultural environment of the early-twentieth-century Los Angeles in which he thrived.” - from the dust jacket flap
