Sleeping baskets on the roof, communal kitchens and a revolving-door salon of artists. Nope, not a Burning Man camp: This is the Schindler House, designed by Austrian architect Rudolf Schindler, who built it as a dual-family residence in which his family cohabited for a time with his frenemy and fellow influential architect Richard Neutra. A quiet, Japanese-influenced concrete building hidden behind a bamboo grove on a street of condos, this experiment in living now houses the Mak Center, a Vienna-based institute that runs a fantastic program of events in the space (think experimental fashion shows, innovative performance art and concerts of new compositions). During the week, you can wander around the empty house and imagine yourself part of the freewheeling LA bohemia of the 1920s and 1930s.

This was SUCH an interesting house! Make sure you have the docent give you a tour to really acquire an understanding for the development of the building. Highly recommend visiting!
