Paul Rudolph: an almost Icarus-like figure

“Drawings and models of…Paul Rudolph designs, currently in an exhibition at the Rudolph-designed Art and Architecture Building at Yale, seek to resurrect the architect’s reputation as the master builder of town and gown during the heyday of Mayor Richard C. Lee’s ‘Model City’ mania.

“However, both in the nicely wrought exhibition and, particularly in the recollections of colleagues in a video accompanying the exhibition, Rudolph comes across as an almost Icarus-like figure in an era when architecture and urbanism themselves seemed to possess tragic flaws.”
