Catalog for exhibition held at the University of California, Santa Barbara, November 24, 1996 to February 2, 1997 showcasing the work of R. M. Schindler (1887 - 1953), an Austrian-born American architect whose most important works were built in or near Los Angeles during the early to mid-twentieth century. His inventive use of complex three-dimensional forms, warm materials, and striking colors, as well as his ability to work successfully within tight budgets, however, have placed him as one of the true mavericks of early twentieth century architecture.
