Reseña del editor:

A contemporary of Le Corbusier and one-time employee of Frank Lloyd Wright, R.M. Schindler was architect of (amongst much else of note) the Lovell Beach House in California, acknowledged to be one of the key modernist buildings of the 1920s. This book, a reappraisal of Schindler's thought and works, presents plans, line drawings and photographs of buildings and furniture. A selection of Schindler's own writings is included, alongside articles by many scholars of the architect's works that trace Schindler's career on both sides of the Atlantic, from his early days in Vienna studying under Wagner, to his later life in America, where his talents found full expression.

Nota de la solapa:

RM Schindler Composition and Construction Edited by Lionel March and Judith Sheine An exact contemporary of Le Corbusier and one-time employee in the offices of Frank Lloyd Wright, a student of Adolf Loos and Otto Wagner in Vienna whose work first found full expression in the California of the 1920s-the story of the life and works of RM Schindler (1887-1953) lies close to the heart of the history of early 20th-century architecture as a whole. Schindler was an individualist and an innovator, he learned well from his teachers, in particular from the Raumplan of Loos, but developed in America his own wholly distinctive formal approach, paralleling the advances of the Modern Movement and often transcending the limitations of the International Style. His original conception of Space Architecture, expounded in his writings and applied in his works, is a classic expression of modern architectural thought. With his proportional system, the Space Reference Frame, and the more concrete and pragmatic design and building techniques of the Schindler Frame, Schindler's Space Architecture provides a coherent and disciplined approach to design. The Lovell Beach House has long been acknowledged as one of a half-dozen key early American modernist buildings, but readers of this volume will encounter much else besides;a canon of works including many other houses of great beauty, apartment buildings and Schindler's custom-built furniture. Arising out of events staged to mark the architect's centennial in 1987, this volume offers copious documentation, a critical overview and a fresh reappraisal of Schindler's thought and works. A wide selection of Schindler's own writings is presented, including a new translation of his manifesto of 1913, alongside a range of articles by the foremost scholars of his works. The book features a wealth of plans, line drawings and photographs of built works.
