The architectural models from the exhibit "The Architecture of R. M. Schindler (1887-1953)" span 15 linear feet and date from
circa 1967. The collection is composed of four architectural models of the following Schindler houses: Lovell Beach house,
Buck house, Oliver house, and the unbuilt house for Erick Locke. Dimensions of the four models are approximately 51 in (l)
x 36 in (w).
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.
