Paul Rudolph frat house

At Rudolph’s old house, frat puts function over form Zeynep Pamuk Yale Daily News February 16, 2009

“A 1960s Vogue magazine photo shoot of a cocktail party in Paul Rudolph’s former New Haven house depicts women wearing pearls and men in tuxedos sipping martinis next to Rudolph’s trademark cantilevered staircase — steps that appear to be floating in the air. Parties are still hosted in that space today, but the current residents of Rudolph’s house on 31 High Street, the Yale chapter of the Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity, have permanently altered, among other things, the signature Rudolph staircase.”
