The MAK Center operates from the landmark Schindler House (R.M. Schindler, 1922) in West Hollywood; the Mackey Apartments (R.M. Schindler, 1939); and the Fitzpatrick-Leland House (R.M. Schindler, 1936) in Los Angeles. It is the California satellite of MAK — Austrian Museum of Applied Arts / Contemporary Art in Vienna.

Unique in its role as a constellation of historic architectural sites and contemporary exhibition spaces, the MAK Center develops local, national, and international projects in art, architecture, and their intersections and tangents. It seeks out and supports projects that take risks in their fields and test disciplinary boundaries. The MAK Center acts as a cultural laboratory, encouraging the development of ideas in art and architecture by engaging the center’s places, spaces, and histories. Its programming includes exhibitions, lectures, symposia, discussions, performances, music series, publication projects, salons, architecture tours, and new work commissions. It collaborates frequently with guest curators, artists and architects.

The Landmark Schindler House on Kings Road
Designed and built by Schindler in 1921-22 as live/work space for two families—his own and friend and engineer Clyde Chace’s—the Schindler House redefined notions of public and private spheres. As a result of its innovative program for communal modern living, the house became a site of forward- thinking aesthetic, cultural, and political activity throughout the 1920s-50s.

Fitzpatrick-Leland House

The dramatic L-shaped Fitzpatrick-Leland House was originally commissioned by developer Clifton Fitzpatrick as a speculative home, to attract buyers to the new housing tracts at the top of Laurel Canyon.
