Paul Rudolph Weekend with Chris Mottalini

Chris Mottalini writes: “I was just down in Sarasota* and had the chance to photograph the skeleton of Paul Rudolph’s Sarasota High School (1959). In its current state, it feels more like a giant sculpture than a building. I’ve gotta say it was beautiful to see the building as Rudolph first envisioned it…I wouldn’t be surprised if these pictures are mistaken for being taken fifty years ago.”
