DAY 1 – Paul Rudolph

.

That’s right, It Architecture Week again! The Amereican Institute of Architects has officially deemed April 8-14 a week to celebrate, and I won’t argue. Although, this is a totally made-up holiday and a fine excuse to spend the week talking about architecture.  So, this week I’ll dedicate the blog to “Architecture”, which, oddly, is a rare thing here at Coffee with an Architect. I tend to talk “around” architecture. But this week, I’ll look it right in the eyes. Like a hungry tiger, or a panther, no, a black panther, made of concrete and angst.

I celebrated Architecture Week last year (HERE), so I guess I should do it again right? Don’t answer that. Here goes.

Day 1 – Paul Rudolph. American Architect, former Dean of Yale, and master of Brutalism, which sounds less awesome than it actually is.

Enjoy the board-formed concrete:
