Spaces: The Architecture of Paul Rudolph, directed and produced by Bob Eisenhardt, recreates a genuine sense of the personal presence of the late modern architect, Paul Rudolph, and the ambience of his studio. Mr. Rudolph was widely recognized within the architectural profession as spontaneously brilliant — the unchallenged master of space and the manipulation of form. The film was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Documentary Short.
In addition to Spaces, our program will feature several short films that celebrate the extraordinary architecture of Paul Rudolph.
Concretopia, by William Lepczyk, is a short documentary shot on location at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, showcasing the visionary beauty of Paul Rudolph’s 1963 design for the SMTI (now UMASS) campus.
A meditation on the significance, influence, and progressive ideals behind Brutalism, the film takes viewers on a hypnotizing journey through abstract concrete environments, while celebrating this uncompromising architectural style. A student-made short film created by architecture students from Cal Poly Pomona will also be shown, as well as a bonus extra from the Palm Springs ModCom’s Walker Guest House Replica!
