Rudolph Schindler, Architect
Bethlehem Baptist Church, 1944
4901 Compton Avenue, Los Angeles, CA
Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument #968. With Rudolph Schindler's complete control of "space, climate, light and mood," he creates a space well-suited for its purpose. Originally designed for a small African-American congregation, nearly everything about the church was unique (including the original color scheme which ranged from warm blue to eggplant, to purplish red). "With no attempt to imitate masonry," Schindler's design achieved a sense of massiveness through the distinctive exterior banding. The horizontal bands of stucco siding which appear to be wood, tie the building to the streetscape. Schindler placed the L-shaped church at the corner, with a

Dr. L.L. Cowley Residence, 1954
5401 East El Cedral Street, Long Beach, CA
Dr. L.L. Cowley selected this sylvan grove of sycamores on over a third of an acre. From the exterior, the house retains the architectural elements that are a trademark of Kenneth S. Wing's beach aesthetic: board and batten siding, a front entrance that consists of a breezeway and courtyard built on descending levels, a highly articulated roof line, and mullioned and bay windows leading to the front entry. The interior's long expanses of glass, the brick fireplace and carefully scaled rooms overlooking the swimming pool were all done in a style that Killingsworth would become known for. With a formal dining room area, en suite master bedroom, two additional bedrooms and baths, the

Stephen Guerrant, A.I.A.
The Schweibert Residence, 1980
625 Oak Street, Winnetka, IL
With his modern interpretation of a New England saltbox, Stephen Guerrant's 1980 design of the Schweibert Residence introduces a post-modern aesthetic to an older, established neighborhood of period piece homes. While the design is indeed progressive, the symmetry of broad, low-slung roofline and careful placement of shingles blends in mellifluously with its Tudor and Colonial Revival neighbors. Guerrant's forward-thinking inclusion of geometric shapes predates the post-modern designs which came to dominate American landscape in the ensuing decades, thus establishing the Schweibert's home as a forerunner of the next chapter in vernacular architecture in the United States.
