  • Walker Guest House

    Date(s): 1952-1953
    Location:  Sanibel Island, Florida
    Status: Built
    Type: Residence

    Lacking the dynamic roof of the Healey “Cocoon” Guest House (Siesta Key, Florida 1948-9), or the material ingenuity of his signature Twitchell-era Florida Houses identifiable by their jalousie windows, cypress wood accents and Ocala blocks, the seemingly benign Walker Guest House is easily overlooked.  

    Built of dim...

  • Dean Residence

    Date(s): 1969
    Location:  Great Neck, New York
    Status: Built
    Type: Residence

    Designed for a former executive of Endo Pharmaceuticals, the Deane residence continues in the spirit of the Burroughs Wellcome Headquarters, where nearly every aspect of its design derives from a single geometric figure. Returning for the first time to the expressed wood members of the Fifties, each module is constructed of ...

  • Sarasota High School

    Date(s): 1958 - 1960
    Location:  Sarasota, Florida
    Status: Built
    Type: School

    The second of two high schools Rudolph completed for the Sarasota School District, Sarasota High School forms both a bookend to the work of the Fifties and a premonition of the work to follow.

    While preoccupied with ideals of structural clarity inherited from his education at the Harvard Graduate School of Design, Rudolph'...

  • 23 Beekman Place

    Date(s): 1977-1995
    Location: New York, NY
    Status: Built
    Type: Residence

    In 1961, Rudolph began renting a small one-bedroom apartment at 23 Beekman Place overlooking the East River in Manhattan.  Through a series of three major renovations he tested out his latest ideas for experimental materials and especially artificial lighting effects. In his bedroom he installed a "light curtain", a series of li...

  • Lippo Center

    Date(s): 1998
    Location: New York, NY
    Status: Built
    Type: Residence

    The Lippo Centre is a double office tower on Hong Kong Island, whose unusual blue curtain wall facades evoke koala bears climbing a tree. There are three large bay windows on top of one another on each side of the four long facades, rotating around the structure. The towers are offset from each other. The supporting columns are visib...

  • Bass Residence

    Date(s): 1970-1976
    Location:  Fort Worth TX
    Status: Built
    Type: Residence

    Rudolph’s most ambitious residence in both size and scope was, in his mind, also his greatest. Dazzling if not domestic, its stark white forms seem to hover above the landscape rather then grow out of it in an elegant counterpoint of floating horizontal planes and volumes. Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater had been a fascinati...

  • Micheels Residence

    Date(s): 1972 - 2007
    Location:  Westport, Connecticut
    Status: Demolished
    Type: Residence

    In his 1972 scheme for the Louis Micheels family, Rudolph returned to the linear organization favored in the Fifties that allowed both expansive views and cross ventilation. By this time, though, his interest was in the organization of planes to define space rather than a clear expression of a single enclosing v...

  • The Concourse

    Date(s): 1994
    Location: Singapore
    Status: Built
    Type: Residence/Hotel

    Singapore is located near the equator and its tropical climate demands a special architecture that is sensitive to the levels of light, heat and humidity. The Concourse Building is a skyscraper that uses solar shading and communal gardens and external balconies to address the climate and exploit the lush tropical vegetation. Wide ...
