Description:

Born in Elkton, Kentucky in 1918, Paul Rudolph became one of the most well-known American architects in the post-WWII period. His most ambitious work was the campus of Southeastern Massachusetts Technological Institute (now the University of Massachusetts-Dartmouth) and he did much to showcase his various talents in this project. After studying under Walter Gropius at Harvard, he later accepted the chairmanship of the department of architecture at Yale University. On this site, visitors can learn about his projects around the United States, view models and drawings of his work at UMass-Dartmouth, and also look at a detailed bibliography of his writings. The Building Images area contains a vast raft of photos that document notable works in Alabama, New York City, and dozens of other locales. The site is rounded out by a great Quotes section that offer observations from the master himself.
