Schindler Church Up for Sale

Austrian architect Rudolf Schindler is one of a handful of iconic L.A architects. After he moved to LA in 1920, he embraced the indoor-outdoor lifestyle and created buildings to match. He mainly designed private residences. But he did create one church in South LA. It was built in 1944 as the Bethlehem Baptist Church, but it eventually become dilapidated and inaccessible. Conservationists cheered last year when the building was spruced up and reopened as a church. But the celebration may have been premature: now, it’s up for sale and its future is unclear.
