Paul Rudolph: The Florida Houses
Publisher: Princeton Architectural Press 2016 ISBN: 9781568985510 Editors: Christopher Domin, Joseph King Format: softcover, 248pp, 250x200mm
Paul Rudolph, one of the 20th century's most iconoclastic architects, is best known – and most maligned – for his large ‘brutalist’ buildings, like the Yale Art and Architecture Building. But his Florida houses, some 80 projects built between 1946 and 1961, brought modern architectural form into a gracious subtropical world of natural abundance. This shows all of Rudolph's early residential work, with his personal essays and duotone photographs by Ezra Stoller and Joseph Molitor.
