Rudolf M. Schindler (1887-1953) is regarded today as an outstanding exponent and pioneer of the California modernist style. Schindler's vision, revealed in his Hollywood residence (1922) and his 1926 beach house design for Philip Lovell, proved to have a lasting influence on the development of modern architecture in California. Schindler created over 500 building designs in his lifetime. More than 150 of these, mostly family residences, were actually built, and the many still in existence were photographed for this book. From the Old House Journal reference library.
