Simply put, this is one of the most revolutionary houses ever built. The spareness and simplicity of the building is amazing: it's often described as half-tent, half-house. Schindler rethought what it means to live, and to live in relationships with others, and designed a building...More

We were very excited to visit Schindler House after seeing the website. We're a big fan of Frank Lloyd Wright and modern architecture and what a cool thing to see, one of the most modern, historic homes in the city. At $7 per person, we...More
