Kings Road House- under construction



Two men are shown hoisting a poured concrete slab into place using a pulley system on the partially completed house. The tilt-slab construction system was invented by architect Irving Gill, and modified by Schindler so that only two people are needed to hoist the slabs into place. Each slab is separated by 3 inches of glass or wood.


Schindler, R. M., (Rudolph M. ), 1887-1953, architect. No photographer listed.
