On the centenary of the death of Gustav Klimt (1862–1918), the MAK is focusing on the artist’s designs for the mosaic frieze—a
highlight of its collection—in the dining room of the Stoclet House in Brussels: KLIMT’S MAGIC GARDEN is a virtual reality experiment, inspired by Klimt’s masterpiece Expectation and Fulfillment. The virtual reality artist and
filmmaker Frederick Baker has used high-resolution digital photographic material to create a fantastic virtual world in which
visitors can embark on an interactive filmic journey.

The Schindler House
The home and studio of the Austrian-American architect Rudolph M. Schindler on Kings Road in West Hollywood serves today as the homebase of the MAK Center for Art and Architecture, Los Angeles. This seminal building was declared an architectural landmark by the World Monument Fund in 2002. Today Schindler counts
as one of the most important modern architects.
