Blogger admires Rudolph's work at MoMA's "Home Delivery" Exhibit

 

The "Art Ongoing" blog had this to say about the Paul Rudolph entry currently on exhibit the "Home Delivery" show at MoMA.

"It is always interesting how quality shows, how the superior entry will make its presence known. Of all of the beautifully made models on display here, none of them seem so human and so logical and so right as the model of a design by Paul Rudolph. I can imagine an entire exhibition being built around this work…his work in fact. I hope the time will soon be right for that to happen."

For the full review see below.

Charles Gwathmey on his renovation and addition to the Art and Architecture Building, Yale University

“It was very complimentary for me to have been asked to do this because I loved Paul and because of my time here. Paul used to recruit Der Scutt (Yale, ’61) and me to ink perspective drawings of the building at night. As he designed, he struggled about being across the street from Louis Kahn. For me to be able to come back and restore the building and also do an addition is a great way to express my gratitude.”

The Life of the Buildings

"My buildings are like children. And when the Art and Architecture Building at Yale was burned, I felt that somebody had died. My buildings are very real presences for me, and they change—are changed—and have a life of their own."

Another blogger with interesting comments on the A & A and its addition

 

Yale School of Architecture - New Wing

"In simple language I would say it looks mediocre. But in architecture we were taught not to use such simple and plain terms. So, in more elaborated architectural language I would say that it has diluted the powerful vertical and horizontal volumes and textures created by the Yale School of Architecture by adding a number of seemingly random, bitty shapes to the composition."
