Northwest Urban Renewal Area, Washington, DC, 1966 Project Not Built


 

"In these buildings – with a stepped-back “hillside-village” form and ever-changing rooflines within a  simple construction discipline - Rudolph has given both low-and high –rise the same, very residential scale. ‘It’s my hope that these units will seem like houses in the sky, not drawers in a cabinet.’ Another advantage of these innovative forms is the creation of major private outdoor living spaces for almost every unit. And they are real terraces - not balconies, which Rudolph calls ‘useless.’"

"House in the Sky" - with Terrace - under 221-D-3. Architectural Record 143 (June 1968): 160.
