Friends of the Schindler House (FOSH)
Friends of the Schindler House (FOSH) is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to preserve and maintain Schindler's Kings Road house in West Hollywood California. The group was formally established in 1976 by Schindler's wife Pauline who was concerned that the house be preserved for future generations. At the time the house was facing numerous threats including redevelopment and escalating property taxes. The house finally was acquired in 1980 with funding from the California Office of Historic Preservation.
Restoration has been ongoing since 1980 with funding from the City of West Hollywood, the State of California, the Republic of Austria, and private donations. The intent is to return the house to its appearance on the date of completion, June 6, 1922.
Since August 1994 the house has served as the base of the MAK Center for Art and Architecture, LA, at the Schindler House.
