Description
The association between the architects Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959) and R. M. Schindler (1887-1953) began in 1914 when Schindler first wrote to Wright asking for a position, and revolved around two major commissions while Schindler worked for Wright: the Imperial Hotel in Tokyo, known as Teikoku Hoteru (1913-1923), and the Barnsdall project, which includes Hollyhock house, in Los Angeles (1915-1924). Correspondence between Frank Lloyd Wright and R. M. Schindler contains approximately 160 items, primarily letters and telegrams, dating from 1914 (the year Schindler came to the United States from Vienna) to 1929.
