Detail Drawing

Discussion P. Lovell House Commentary

"In the Lovell beach house, Newport Beach, 1926, living space was developed inside of five free-standing reinforced concrete frames, cast in the form of square figure eights. Schindler objected to pipe column stilts, calling his own system 'projections of five visible concrete frames which form an organic skeleton.'

The Lovell house was not primarily a drawing board solution—as was much of the work done at that time by the Constructivists in Europe. Schindler's purpose in using the frames was to raise the house above the public beach, and also to develop a skeletal system solid and flexible enough to withstand earthquakes."

—Esther McCoy. Five California Architects. p165.

The Creator's Words

"Tecknik = type based on human laws.
