MAK Center for Art and Architecture, Los Angeles

The MAK Center for Art and Architecture, established in 1994 in Los Angeles, is based today in three of the most important houses by the Austrian-American architect Rudolph M. Schindler. Since his emigration to the USA in 1914, the experimental Vienna-based visionary has given direction to a modern architectural percept in California. Focusing on the permanent and lively exchange between Vienna and Los Angeles, new tendencies and interdisciplinary progresses on the field of art and architecture have been realized at the MAK Center throughout the last thirteen years. An Austrian cultural institution of internationally esteemed format has been created at the west coast of the USA.

Schindler House (1921–1922)

Rudolf M. Schindler’s own internationally renowned studio and residence on Kings Road, West Hollywood serves as the public center of the MAK Schindler Initiative devoted to contemporary art and architecture.
Acting as a “think tank” for current issues, the MAK Center at the Schindler House encourages exploration of experimental, practical, and theoretical trajectories in art and architecture through exhibitions, lectures, discussions, performances, screenings, and publications.

Mackey Apartments (1939)

The Mackey Apartments, exemplary of Schindler’s later designs that contrast with the subdued structuring of the façade that is typical of L.A., comprises five apartments.
Purchased by the Republic of Austria in 1995 and established as the first permanent Artists-in-Residence center in the US, the Mackey Apartments are the vibrant base of the MAK Center Artists and Architects-in-Residence Program, which is today one of the most sought-after scholarships internationally.
In 2004 the Mackey Archive has been installed at the Mackey Apartments and is continuously being expanded and digitalized.

Fitzpatrick-Leland House (1936)

The Fitzpatrick-Leland House, an exemplary modern residence located at the crest of Laurel Canyon Boulevard and Mulholland Drive, has been donated to the MAK Center by a single donor, Russ Leland, in 2008. The MAK Center has dedicated the house to small-scale events and the lodging of international cultural researchers visiting Los Angeles for artistic and scholarly pursuits.
