Schindler House Restoration

Cameraman Pierluigi Serraino surveys the first stage of restoration work at the Schindler House on Kings Road in 1986. Workers are demolishing later additions to get closer to the 1922 form. Robert Sweeney, Director of Friends of the Schindler House and supervisor of the restoration, describes the work underway to restore the floors and the roof patio to their original state. The camera documents the demolition of a floor, and some old newspapers found on the site. Sweeney takes Mark Schindler, the son of Rudolph and Pauline, and architecture historian Kathryn Smith on a tour of the house, explaining the demolition work under way. Workers uncover a commemorative inscription, and remove substantial parts of the roof patio.
