Library Journal Review

Rudolf M. Schindler, a Viennese-born architect who studied with Adolf Loos and worked for Frank Lloyd Wright, is known for his contribution to the California modernist style in residential design. Though he was little recognized in life, his reputation was rescued by Esther McCoy in Five California Architects (1987. 2d ed.) and David Gebhard in the seminal Schindler (William Stout, 1997. 3d ed.). Steele's brief essay on the life and work of SchindlerÄpresented here alongside a collection of platesÄpales in comparison to these works. The only meritorious aspect of this "coffee-table Schindler" is the fine photography. Over 160 illustrations, in color and black and white, provide an excellent visual presentation of the architect's work, second only to that found in RM Schindler, edited by Lionel March and Judith Sheine (Academy Eds., 1995). Recommended for comprehensive architectural collections.ÄJay Schafer, Bay Path Coll. Lib., Longmeadow, MA (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
