Homestyle Center Exhibition, Grand Rapids, MI, Model for House in the Southeast, 1955 Project Not Built or Sited


 

“This house was to be ‘an isolated suburban home reflecting the open living that may be enjoyed on the southwest Gulf Coast, completely flexible…’ It was to have three bedrooms, two baths, for three to five people; contain about 1600 sq ft, and cost $20,000. Rudolph used plastic panels, mechanically lifted, which convert the house into either a completely enclosed or open pavilion; natural light is by a peripheral skylight. The house straddles a lake inlet.”
