SCHINDLER, RUDOLPH M.

SCHINDLER, RUDOLPH M. (1887–1953), U.S. architect. Born in Vienna, Schindler immigrated to America in 1913, and settled in Chicago. He worked in the office of Frank Lloyd Wright from 1916 to 1921. His Lovell House, Newport Beach (1926), represents a fusion of Wright's style with the international modern style as interpreted in Central Europe. After 1926 he worked with Richard *Neutra in Los Angeles. The buildings they produced were among the earliest examples of the international style in the U.S.
