Join us from February 11–March 9, 2019 for the exhibit Paul Rudolph: 100 Years of Space and Form. Paul Rudolph was a Modern pioneer in what became known as the Sarasota School of Architecture, and became one of the most important and influential American architects of the Twentieth Century.
Bridging a Southern upbringing with Bauhaus influences and Harvard training, Rudolph created dozens of notable houses and buildings in Sarasota, Florida in the 1950s before becoming Chairman of the Yale School of Architecture. At Yale, Rudolph not only worked with and taught many of the past century’s greatest architects, he designed one of his greatest buildings, the iconic Brutalist masterpiece Yale Art & Architecture Building, now renamed Rudolph Hall.
Continuing a worldwide influence in practice in the 1960s until his passing in 1997, Paul Rudolph’s architecture focused on innovation in the experience of space and scale, as well as groundbreaking inventions in material and construction. Rudolph’s work would serve as a critical influence on Modern architecture and a key point of dialogue in the advent of post-Modernism in architecture.
Paul Rudolph: 100 Years of Space and Form is presented in conjunction with the current replica installation of Paul Rudolph’s 1953-designed Walker Guest House in downtown Palm Springs, a joint project of the Sarasota Architectural Foundation and Palm Springs Modern Committee. On display inside the William F. Cody-designed Palm Springs Public Library, this exhibit will highlight Rudolph’s brilliant architectural career and work. Presented in partnership with Palm Springs Modern Committee.
