On the recent tour given by Bob Stern for journalists writing on Paul Rudolph’s Art and Architecture Building:

“One large open space was the place where students presented their architectural projects to their peers and professors.

“‘You can imagine how nerve-racking it was to make your presentation in this space,’ said Stern, who graduated in 1965. ‘Every student could watch you draw every line. But that was important to Rudolph,’ whose aim was to train the next generation of leaders in architecture. ‘To be an important architect was to be onstage.'”
