Schindler Centennial for Cereal Magazine 2022

A short essay commissioned by Cereal Magazine on the occasion of the MAK Center Schindler House’s 100th birthday (2022).

Shortly after completing my experimental audio tour for the Schindler House centennial, Cereal reached out to see if I'd like to write a piece about the renown landmark to early SoCal modernism. Accompanied by knock out photographs by Rich Stapleton, my piece takes an impressionistic route in exploring the feeling of moving through this dark, intimate space as a modern day visitor.
