Description:
Architecture critic Fred A. Bernstein has called Paul Rudolph the “bald eagle of mid-century modern—a symbol of America, endangered by Americans.” Sadly, this is no exaggeration. From houses and schools to corporate headquarters and civic buildings, no important 20th century architect has had more iconic structures demolished in recent years than Paul Rudolph. Fortunately, two fantastic books—Paul Rudolph: The Florida Houses and the also available Paul Rudolph: The Late Work—document his lost and extant buildings in detail. The Florida Houses includes all of Rudolph’s residential work built in Florida between 1946 and 1961, a prolific period in which the architect experimented with modern architectural form and cutting-edge building materials. Featuring iconic photographs by Ezra Stoller along with Rudolph’s own writings and renderings, this handsomely designed monograph is a long-overdue missing chapter in the history of mid-century modernism.
