Background
The exhibition "The Architecture of R. M. Schindler (1887-1953)” opened at the University of California, Santa Barbara Art Museum March 30 to April 30, 1967 and at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art in the Fall of 1967. Organized by David Gebhard, curator and founder of the Architecture and Design Collection at the University of California, Santa Barbara, the exhibition aimed at documenting the work of Schindler, which at the time was not widely acknowledged. Along with original drawings, the exhibition featured four architectural models that were built for the exhibit, as well as several pieces of furniture constructed from Schindler's original working drawings. Furniture was constructed by the exhibition's designer Stanley Reifel and two of the four models were made by Thomas Fuller, under the direction of Reifel.
