Bass Residence, Fort Worth, TX, 1970


1801 Deepdale Drive, Westover Hills, Fort Worth, TX. "The Bass Residence is without a doubt the most ambitious residential project ever designed by Paul Rudolph. Commissioned by Anne and Sid Bass in 1970, the house accommodates a complex spatial program as well as an extensive contemporary-art collection. Because of its strong horizontal cantilevers and its white-steel and glass finishes, it has been suggested that the Bass Residence resembles a hybrid of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater and Mies van der Rohe’s Farnsworth House. But the spatial diversity and complexity Rudolph achieved in the Bass Residence is unparalleled by either of those works." De Alba, Roberto. Paul Rudolph: The Late Work.
