Inhaltsangabe: "R.M. Schindler: 1933-1942" is the fifth in a series of monographs featuring the works of individual architects by PlanetArchitecture.com. As a follow up to the first R.M. Schindler title, the four additional houses featured here are from the middle period of his career: the Oliver house (1933-34), an early "plaster skin" design of wood frame and stucco; the de Keyser (1935) and the Droste (1940) houses, "plaster skin" designs with some special uses of materials and roof forms; and the Rodriguez house (1940-42), a house of wood, stucco and stone, which served as a transition to his post-war "Schindler Frame" work.

R M Schindler (1887-1953) was a pivotal Modernist architect who remained largely unrecognized by the critical establishment during his lifetime. A pragmatist and theoretician, Schindler designed more than 500 projects, over 150 of which were built, most of these in the Los Angeles area, where he settled in 1920. R.M. Schindler was born in Vienna in 1887. After his studies there with Otto Wagner and Adolf Loos he was drawn to America by Frank Lloyd Wright's work and came to Chicago in 1914, working for Wright in 1918. Wright sent Schindler to Los Angeles in 1920 to supervise construction of the Barnsdall house and Schindler settled there, establishing his own practice, living and working out of his Kings Road house (1921-22), developing his own original form of modern architecture, which he called 'Space Architecture." His central concerns were with the creation of complex and beautiful interior spaces composed of "space, climate, light, mood."
