Talk by Professor Judith Sheine, University of Oregon, USA, world expert on and author of the definitive book on the practice, theoretical ideas and principles of seminal early modernist architect Rudolf Schindler (1887-1953) - ‘R.M.Schindler’ published by Phaidon 2001 (ISBN 0 7148 3914 0)
Schindler’s astonishingly original buildings, wonderful drawings, and his unorthodox methods of working, are a MUST KNOW ABOUT for young architects. Greatly admired by Glenn Murcutt and in the office of Jørn Utzon.
Has R.M.Schindler’s time finally come? Los Angeles at least, seems to have caught up to the architect who was so far ahead of his time. A renewed interest in 20th century modernist architecture has rekindled an interest in Schindler, it is unfortunate that the popularity and recognition have occurred posthumously. *
[He ‘invented’ - ‘slab-tilt’ and ‘slab cast moveable formwork’ in the 1920’s]
Schindler’s ingenuity … allowed him to make affordable architecture for people with more taste than money. To make designs affordable, Schindler supervised construction without the interference or cost of a general contractor. He designed them, drew them, and built them. *
