Notes on the Geography of Indonesia: Bandung: Photo 21
Despite appearing to be made of concrete, construction photos show that the Villa Isola was actually a steel-framed building with light-weight stone walls. Schoemaker's drawings are no help, because they were burned when his own house was destroyed in the troubled years after World War II. The building, van Dullemen points out, bears a very strong resemblance to the impressionistic sketch drawn by Erich Mendelsohn in 1921 and called Toccata in D major. A stronger inspiration, van Dullemen writes, probably came from Hollywood movie sets.
