One of the most original talents of his generation

Bringing Brutal Back: Can restoring Paul Rudolph’s signature building rescue the architect’s reputation as well? Witold Rybczynski Slate Dec. 3, 2008

“The restored building is definitely of its time. It’s a little self-conscious, has an extremely limited palette of materials—there is really too much concrete—and the bright-orange carpeting is a bit much. But the interlocking spaces, the inventive use of natural light, and the ever-changing levels (there are said to be 37 of them in the 10-story building) are marvelous. The splendid result reaffirms Rudolph as one the most original architectural talents of his generation.”
