About this title


The Los Angeles architect Rudolph Schindler is regarded today as one of the central figures of the Modern movement. Trained in Vienna under Otto Wagner and Adolf Loos, Schindler then migrated to Los Angeles under the apprenticeship of Frank Lloyd Wright. Surrounded by a clientele of progressive thinkers in the emerging intellectual culture of Hollywood, Schindler created a radical and intensely personal architectural conception, resulting in some of the seminal works of the twentieth century. Gebhard's Schindler, first issued in 1971, is the only full-length account of Schindler's prolific yet unfulfilled career. The new edition includes 16 full-color illustrations of Schindler's renderings which were not included in the original. Charles Moore said, "David Gebhard's book about Rudolph Schindler was, for me, the most moving story of an architect that I have read since I was astonished at an early age by Frank Lloyd Wright's autobiography." Includes a preface by Henry-Russell Hitchcock.

Store Description

We stock books about art, design, fashion, heritage/history and gender/sexuality, specialising in books about Australian, Asian & Pacific arts, crafts design and cultural history. Since we are committed to marginalised and innovative social and cultural practices, we are more likely to have books on women artists or dissident life than coffee-table books on iconic figures. This shop is in Sydney's legendary Kings Cross area, which has provided alternatives to this country's normalcy and suburbia for the last 80 years. Colloquially known as 'The Cross', this name signifies Antipodean bohemia, streetgangs and a world-famous red light district etc. THE CROSS Art + Books is a foundation member of The Bookdealers Guild (NSW).
