Ruldoph Schindler was born in Vienna in 1887. He studied at the Imperial Technical Institute from 1906 to 1911. After graduating from the Academy of Arts in 1913 with degrees in architecture and engineering, Schindler moved to Chicago where he worked for Frank Lloyd Wright. In 1921 Schindler established a practice in Hollywood. He collaborated with Richard Neutra from 1925..
Schindler and Neutra exhibited a striking difference in the use of materials. While Neutra utilized steel-framed buildings, Schindler designed his works with reinforced concrete. The difficulty in finding skilled concrete workers led Schindler to use studwork and ply. None of his chosen building materials have aged well.
Disregarding material and technical shortcomings, Schindler's designs provide insight into the three-dimensional creation of space. Schindler achieved a vast production of 330 buildings and projects over 40 years.
