This exhibition will serve to both highlight Paul Rudolph's early residential work and show how inspiration from this work can influence contemporary architecture. The exhibition combines "Paul Rudolph: The Florida House's" an exhibition of Paul Rudolph early residential work with work from “Made in the Shade: Re-fabricating Florida's Modern Architecture" a studio conducted at Washington University's Graduate School of Architecture. Models, drawings and vivid period photographs of Paul Rudolph's pivotal mid-century architecture will be juxtaposed with full-scale prototypes, models and drawings from the 2010 fabrication studio. By linking the content from distinct eras the exhibition asserts the innovative nature of Rudolph's early work and highlights the enduring influence of architectural content.
