Paul Rudolph & His Architecture


Introduction
Paul Rudolph was one of the leading architects in America in the 1950s and 60s. His fame spanned the time between the eras of the so-called International School and Postmodernism. His architecture was noteworthy for its unique individual style evident in all his projects, including at UMass Dartmouth. UMass Dartmouth, which was originally called Southeastern Massachusetts Technological Institute (SMTI) is not one of the architect’s most well- known projects but it is one of the most significant. Here, he not only created a unified master plan on a completely empty site but also designed individual buildings and surrounding grounds as well. SMTI /UMass Dartmouth, considered ground-breaking in its day, remains a monumental achievement.
