The former home and studio of Vienna-born architect Rudolph Schindler (1887–1953) offers a fine primer on the modernist elements that so greatly influenced mid-century California architecture. The open floor plan, a flat roof and glass sliding doors, while considered avant-garde back in the 1920s, all became design staples after WWII.

Today Schindler’s old pad houses the MAK Center for Art and Architecture , which runs tours on weekends.
