The Models and Drawings of Schindler houses by Stefanos Polyzoides collection spans 12 linear feet and dates from circa 1986.
The collection is composed of 15 models and drawings of 28 Schindler residences in the southern California area. The models
and architectural drawings that compose this collection were the product of the exhibit
The Architecture of R.M. Schindler.
Stefanos Polyzoides was born in Athens, Greece. He received both his Bachelors and Masters degrees in Architecture from Princeton
University. Polyzoides has been a working architect since 1967, taught at Princeton University, and at the University of Southern
California from 1973 to 1997. In the early 1980s, Polyzoides received a Graham Foundation grant to study the residential design
of R.M. Schindler, followed by another grant from the National Endowment for the Arts which allowed him to construct a traveling
exhibition of Schindler’s residential architecture entitled The Architecture of R.M. Schindler. The exhibition traveled to
Barcelona, Madrid, Sevilla, Valencia and San Sebastian, Spain. Polyzoides has written extensively on architecture, but his
more well-known publications concern Schindler. Today, Polyzoides is a principle of the architectural firm Moule & Polyzoides
founded in 1990 and located in Pasadena, California.
