Tomorrow marks 18th anniversary to the death of one of the most acclaimed architects of the 20th century. Paul Rudolph (we share birthdays) came to fame in the 50s with small, lightweight houses he built on the west coast of Florida, where he first demonstrated his ability to reject conventions and his talent for manipulating spaces. These houses have become ultra influential. By the time he became the leader of the American avant-garde in the 60s, Rudolph had forged a personal, distinctive style which was both expressive and monumental, a part of the New Brutalism. The Movement, which was popular across the globe, from Europe to East Asia, to the US was based on the rough-finished poured concrete which was Le Corbusier’s main structural material. But Rudolph’s Brutalism was different as it emerged from his interest in scenographic design, meaning the idea that a building should be looked from a specific vantage point. Here are some of his marvels to remember Paul Rudolph.
