Rudolph M. Schindler

The architect of the past saw the building as a mass of structural material which he carved. His medium of expression was the same as the sculptor’s mass form.

The architect of our time is discovering a new medium: space.  The house of the future is a symphony of “space forms” - each room a necessary and unavoidable part of the whole.   Structural materials, walls, ceilings, floors, are only the means to an end: the definition of space forms.  They lose their individual importance and are simplified to the utmost - a simple weave of a few materials articulates space into the rooms.
