Paul Rudolph Lecture


Thursday, January 10, 2013
5:30 – 8pm
Sarasota Herald Tribune Community Room
1714 Main Street, Sarasota, FL

Please join SAF for this insightful lecture on architect Paul Rudolph and the Sarasota School of Architecture, presented by architect Gregory Hall, AIA, president of Hall Architects, PA. The lecture will trace Rudolph’s career from his initial work in the office of Sarasota architect Ralph Twitchell, to his departure from the area to become Chairman of the Department of Architecture at Yale University. During that span of only 12 years, Rudolph’s work evolved into some of the most sophisticated examples of modern architecture in the post-World War II period. Rudolph is widely considered to be among the most influential architects of the 20th century.
