Paul Rudolph’s Iconic Walker Guest House To Be Re-Constructed

18 April of 2014 by

The Sarasota Architectural Foundation (SAF) has announced that a replica of Paul Rudolph’s Walker Guest House will be constructed at the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art in Sarasota, Florida. It is hoped the iconic, 24′ x 24′ vacation cottage will be opened to the public by 2015, after which it will be disassembled and transported to select museums around the country.

As can be seen in the Walker Guest House, Paul Rudolph’s modernist architecture is characterized by a particular attention to climate and terrain. Built in 1952, the house remains an example of both the modernist architecture movement as well as a very specific approach to sustainable design.
Using only standard, locally sourced materials, the Walker Guest House pays respect to its environmental context of southwest Florida. Large windows and screens on all four sides of the house allow air to flow throughout
