Abstract

"Explores the opposition to the glass curtain wall and the International Style tall building. By focusing on Paul Rudolph's little-known Boston work, the article investigates European and American alternatives to the curtain wall's prevalence in the late 1950's, ranging from a revived interest in Auguste Perret to the Banfi, Belgiojoso, Peressutti, and Rogers firm's Torre Velasca building in Milan, Italy."
