Rudolph Schindler

Rudolph Michael Schindler was born into a Jewish Viennese family in 1887. A contemporary and life-long friend of Richard Neutra, he also moved to Los Angeles via Chicago, where he worked with Frank Lloyd Wright. A radical modernist, his work was only later admired for its inventiveness and character.

Today, three of his works, the Fitzpatrick-Leland House, the Mackey Apartments and the Schindler House (Residence) in Los Angeles belong to the Austrian Museum of Applied Arts/ Contemporary Art (MAK). They are used for exhibitions and housing of artists in residence.
