The How House provides a concise study of one of RM Schindler's most distinctive works. In an informative essay, James Steele traces events leading up to James Eads How's need for a family home high on a ridge overlooking the Los Angeles river valley, the commission of the highly individualistic architect, RM Schindler, and the construction of the house in 1925. Detailed plans and drawings clearly demonstrate Schindler's development and use of diagonal bilateral symmetry, and his use of characteristic design features, such as the Schindler Frame. Additional appendices, and contributions from the present owner and restorer of the How House, Lionel March, give further insights into Schindler's pragmatic and disciplined approach to design, and the close working relationship between architect and client.
