KING OF THE HILLS: THE ARCHITECTURE OF R. M. SCHINDLER

As LA MoCA’s traveling survey “The Architecture of R. M. Schindler” opens the eyes of museum-goers to the Vienna-born expatriate’s precedent-setting domestic designs, Artforum calls on architects and artists Michael Maltzan, Sam Durant, Roy McMakin, Michael Rotondi, and Wolf Prix to share their views on the California modernist’s legacy. Adding a firsthand reminiscence is Julius Shulman, whose vintage photographs appear here alongside contemporary shots by Grant Mudford. Schindler specialist Judith Sheine opens our roundup with an overview of the architect’s career and reputation, while Sotheby’s historical properties expert Barry Sloane guides us on a connoisseur’s house tour.
