Liggett Residence, Tampa, FL, 1958

"Like its antecedents the Walker Guest House and Davidson Residence, this project directly references traditional Greek revival architecture found in the South. This important influence on Rudolph would have several manifestations throughout his career, varying by degrees of interpretation of the essential characteristics of the genre. At the Liggett house, set in the midst of an orange grove outside of Tampa and at the end of an allee carved from the trees, this influence is evident in a series of overtly expressed structural piers and two-story projecting wings."
