Enigmatic Architecture: R. M. Schindler's Los Angeles Art Matters Lecture with Todd Cronan (in person)
After leaving Wright's office, Schindler went on to become the most influential modern architect in Southern California. This talk explores his enigmatic approach as a designer, from his infamous bohemian mecca, the Kings Road House, to his last great "translucent" works, including the remarkable Janson and Tischler Houses. In many ways, Schindler's work remains a mystery, full of seemingly arbitrary shapes, patterns, and angles they seem to many like futuristic set designs for early Hollywood film. We will try and unravel some of the mysteries that surround this astonishing body of work.
