Paul Rudolph: Concrete Connoisseur | Mid-Century Modern Furniture Then and Now

Paul Rudolph: Concrete Connoisseur | Mid-Century Modern Furniture Then and Now | Mid-Century Modern Architects and Architecture | Scoop.it
ParadigmGallery's insight:

Paul Rudolph was born to a nomadic Methodist preacher in 1918.

He was instrumental in the development of the Sarasota School of Architecture which highlighted natural light, sweeping overhangs and flat roofs, among other details.

 

His Brutalist Architecture (architectural style of the mid-20th century characterized by massive or monolithic forms, usually of poured concrete) is often a contentious subject in light of the frequency in which it is in the headlines for demolition versus restoration.

 

Paul Rudolph is high on the list of great American Architects

ParadigmGallery's insight:

October 16th marks the 58th anniversary of the groundbreaking for Lafayette Park, which occurred in 1956. The complex was designed by a trio of world-class designers: Ludwig Hilbersheimer as urban planner, Alfred Caldwell as Landscape Designer and Mies Van Der Rohe as architect. Lafayette Park is arguably one of the best examples of successful multi-complex housing schemes in North America. NYtimes Interactive post:http://nyti.ms/1F6t6SI #Mies #Detroit #urbanrenewal
Lafayette Park continues to be the subject of a number of articles looking at the design legacy of this unique community and its continued relevance as a model for resource-sensitive urban renewal.

ParadigmGallery's insight:

The weekend of October 9-12, I’ll be in Sarasota for Sarasota MOD Weekend, a celebration of the area’s 1940s through ’60s architectural heritage, when architects like Paul Rudolph, Ralph Twitchell, Victor Lundy, Tim Seibert, Gene Leedy, Carl Abbott and others produced a stock of residential and commercial buildings responding to local climate and culture with great modernist style.

 

This group, which became known as the Sarasota School of Architecture, found its initial inspiration in the philosophies of the Bauhaus, but soon incorporated regional Southern features, “using patios, verandas, modular construction and raised floors to open up buildings for greater ventilation in pre-air conditioning days,” as the website of the Sarasota Architectural Foundation puts it. “They added a play of light and shadow, and the color and texture of indigenous low maintenance materials softened the cold machine aesthetic of the Bauhaus.

ParadigmGallery's insight:

House Adrenaline #architecture #modern #mexico #color http://bit.ly/1nAEj1K
Ricardo Legorreta, a disciple of Luis Barragán, applied elements of Barragan's architecture in his work including bright colors, play of light and shadow, and solid Platonic geometric shapes.
...I used to dream about working in projects that would be modern but still upheld the value of vernacular mexican architecture and I believe he did just that. I always admired his use of volume, light and color, but most especially, I now admire the love he expressed for his country and his career. http://ceciliahanover.tumblr.com/
On December 30th, 2011, I read the sad news about his passing at the age of eighty. And as his quote below mentions, I’m sure his ideals will survive.

"Surrounded by this magical world (Mexico), I have devoted my life to the most beautiful profession, knowing that the road is endless and that when we disappear, if our ideals are worthy, somebody will pick up our flag and continue. We live in a period of speed: in order to manage it we need to work together, looking at technology as a tool and not as a goal, keeping the basic values of humanism, avoiding superficiality, solving people’s needs without serving power and materialism"

Rest in peace Ricardo Legorreta and thanks for the inspiration.

National Assembly of Bangladesh - Architecture of the World - WikiArquitectura | Mid-Century Modern Architects and Architecture | Scoop.it

ParadigmGallery's insight:

If we look at the history of architecture since its beginning, say from the time of the pyramids to modern times, and make a list of the most significant buildings, it is likely that the National Assembly of Bangladesh (also known as Sher-e-Bangla Nagar) will occupy quite a prominent position. One could say that it was the culmination of the modern period of architecture and the beginning of the post-modern era.

 

One of my favorite quotes by Louis Kahn:

''If you think of Brick, you say to Brick, ‘What do you want, Brick?’ And Brick says to you, ‘I like an Arch.’ And if you say to Brick, ‘Look, arches are expensive, and I can use a concrete lintel over you. What do you think of that, Brick?’ Brick says, ‘I like an Arch.’ And it’s important, you see, that you honor the material that you use. [..] You can only do it if you honor the brick and glorify the brick instead of shortchanging it.''

Charles Eames as Architect:Eames House

http://www.greatbuildings.com/buildings/Eames_House.html

 

View videos:http://www.archdaily.com/516960/happy-birthday-charles-eames/

 

"Charles Eames' own house was one of a number of Case Study Houses sponsored by the West Coast journal Arts and Architecture. The aim of the magazine was to seek out new design ideas—particularly in the use of new materials and techniques—and to propagate good design. Eames' house was certainly unconventional, a package of standard, off-the-peg components which, when assembled, made up an art-work as unique as a Duchamp ready-made.

 

"Eames' house uses existing industrially made components in a straightforward and workmanlike way. But he uses the paneling necessary for an industrial grid in an inventive way. The exterior of his house consists of transparent panels, clear or wired glass; translucent panels which are glass fibre and opaque ones which are wood, grey asbestos, aluminum and coloured blue, red, earth colour, black, or, on occasion, covered with plaster covered with gold leaf.

Thank you's go out to the curator, Lauren Moss for sharing this... Starting in the early 1950s, architect William Krisel ’49 designed tens of thousands of graceful, light-filled Modern homes that ordinary people could afford. FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT, Walter Gropius and other big-name architects tried to bring Modern home design to the masses, but their projects were never constructed on a large scale. To find a still-active midcentury architect who actually brought clean, dramatic design to the middle class, look instead to USC-trained architect William Krisel ’49.

Yahoo....great idea and glad to see this! " The relics of the recent past are some of the worst preserved of our architectural history. All over the United States mid-century structures are in danger of disappearing, or are already in the shadows of looming wrecking balls, from hospitals in Chicago to the Astrodome in Houston. The new Modernism in America Awards from the nonprofit conservation organization Docomomo US are aiming to bring attention to some of these buildings, and show why saving them is important."

 

We hope you will get on board and spread the word...the post goes on to explain the goals: The selected projects are all examples of sensitive preservation projects that respect the history of sites, while also addressing the fact that any way they will survive and not fall into another quick demise is through sustainable future use.

 

It comes down to community outrage, social media and caring enough to share and support this movement/project from  nonprofit conservation organization Docomomo US who are aiming to bring attention to some of these buildings, and show why saving them is important.

AD Classics: Gwathemy Residence and Studio / Charles Gwathmey

AD Classics: Gwathemy Residence and Studio / Charles Gwathmey | Mid-Century Modern Architects and Architecture | Scoop.it
ParadigmGallery's insight:

Charles Gwathmey (June 19, 1938 – August 3, 2009) was an American architect. He was a principal at Gwathmey Siegel & Associates Architects, as well as one of the five architects identified as The New York Five in 1969. One of Gwathmey's most famous designs is the 1992 renovation of Frank Lloyd Wright's Guggenheim Museum in New York City.. Wikipedia

 

"As his first residential project, Gwathmey was given the freedom by his parents to have full control of the design as long as it was in their $35,000 budget."

 

"Gwathmey intended for the house to be sculpture on the site, and he approached this by carving out primitive forms, such as cubes, to create different spaces. The “carving” of these spaces was determined by responses to the site, solar orientation, program, and structure"

ParadigmGallery's insight:

"Wright believed geometric forms had symbolic power and he used repeating geometric shapes to help unify his spaces. According to him, the triangle shape, seen here in the museum stairway, suggested structural unity." Frank Lloyd Wright page fb

https://www.facebook.com/franklloydwrightsites

 

"The maple wood blocks . . . are in my fingers to this day," said Frank Lloyd Wright, attesting to the influence of the Froebel blocks on his work. The blocks were developed by Friedrich Froebel in the 1830s for children to learn the elements of geometric form, mathematics and creative design.

Frank Lloyd Wright was interested in architecture early in his life and his mother purchased a set of Froebel kindergarten blocks at the Centennial Expostition in Philadelphia so that he could begin building. Frank was fascinated by the blocks and much of his architectural design was influenced by the geometric shapes he experiemented with as a child. http://www.froebelweb.org/web2000.html

 

Geometric forms also held symbolic significance. The circle, he said, suggested infinity; the triangle, structural unity; the spire, aspiration; the spiral, organic progress; and the square, integrity

Chicago Architecture Beyond the Boys Club - The American Institute of Architects

Chicago Architecture Beyond the Boys Club - The American Institute of Architects | Mid-Century Modern Architects and Architecture | Scoop.it
In a city known for steel spans and broad shoulders, women?s design sensibilities aren?t the first things that usually come to mind, but Chicago has been intensely shaped by women architects

 

Kerbis’ most important work in Chicago is at O'Hare, where her Rotunda building still makes a strong structural design statement. The Rotunda was completed in 1963 as a link between Terminals 2 and 3.

ParadigmGallery's insight:

In 1973 Gertrude Lempp Kerbis sent out letters to women in the Chicago architecture community. She welcomed these women to join her after work to discuss the status of women in architecture. In a small office at 664 North Michigan Avenue, Chicago Women in Ardwitecture was founded. http://www.cwarch.org/history.html

Founding members include Gertrude Lempp Kerbis. Carol Ross Barney, Cynthia Weese, Nancy Abshire, Gunduz Dagdelen, Natalie de Blois, Laura Fisher. and Jane M. Jacobsen, many of whom continue to be involved in the organization today and advocate for our members.

It is significant that the restaurant is not far from the town of Matosinhos where the architect grew up, and set in a landscape that he was intimately familiar with. It was still possible in Portugal of the 1960s to make architecture by working in close contact with the site, and this work, much like the Leça Swimming Pools of 1966, is about ‘building the landscape’ of this marginal zone on the Atlantic – through a careful analysis of the weather and tides, existing plant life and rock formations, and the relationship to the avenue and city behind....

The aphorism is one of the most used (and abused) in design and architecture.
ParadigmGallery's insight:

Exquisite spring image of Lafayette Park, Detroit: architect Mies van der Rohe.

 

Wikipedia says:

 

"Less is more", a phrase from the 1855 poem "Andrea del Sarto, called 'The Faultless Painter'" by Robert BrowningThe phrase was adopted by the architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe as a precept for minimalist design

 

Having said this the Phaedon post talks about Mies and states the quote was first aired by architect Peter Behrens when the 21-year-old Mies was working with him on his AEG Turbine Factory in Berlin between 1907 and 1910.

 

Peter Behrens was responsible for bringing on the careers of a number of young architects, among them Le Corbusier, Walter Gropius, Adolf Meyer, Jean Kramer.
