Innovation: Schindler House Location: West Hollywood, California
Year:  1921
Architect: Rudolf Schindler

In 1921, Architect Rudolf Schindler started construction on Schindler House, which was considered to be the first house built in modern style. The house contains no conventional living room, dining room, or bedrooms. Instead of bedrooms this house contains four studio spaces. This house is meant to be a cooperative live/work space for two young families, where it is laid out as two interlinking “L” shapes that have a common space in between. A campsite Schindler had seen a year before inspired this idea of a modern style house built on flat concrete slabs where the walls are concrete tilt up slabs. The innovations in this building helped architects and engineers shift from traditional style buildings to the new modern style, which allowed the creation of different spaces in a house. In other words, a house was not just limited to having rooms and a kitchen. In fact, the home could have whatever was practical for the family, or, in this case, families.
