Rudolph-designed house demolished

Rudolph-Designed House Comes Down
By Jennifer Connic, Westport Now January 13, 2007

“’It’s sadly ironic that as interest in Modernist architecture is awakening, this house goes down,’ said Morley Boyd, Westport Historic District Commission chairman. ‘This serves as an example that underscores the importance of designating a home as historic. If a house is not designated, it isn’t safe.’”

“‘…The house is not only important architecturally to Westport, [Michael Glynn, an architect who tried to save the house] said, but it’s also an important national and international example of Rudolph’s work.

“This will reach a national and international level,” he said. ‘We just didn’t have enough time (to save the house). We did the best we could.’”
