During and after his studies, he practiced architecture in Germany, USA and the Netherlands. He co-founds in 2005 schindlersalmerón architecture + product design and in 2007 designtoproduction, a consultancy for digital production of complex design. He has lectured throughout the world and was guest teacher for the realization of 1:1 student projects at several universities. He is member of ACADIA, SAH, SIA and REG A.

  Schindler regards architecture as a result of technical history and technical history not as a momentary state-of-the-art, but as a continuous development. He developed a three-wave scheme of technological development, defined as hand-tool-technolgy, machine-tool-technology, and information-tool-technology. In his PhD , he conducts case-studies to consequently apply information-tool-technolgy in timber architecture.
