The 1970s

A fire at Yale's Art & Architecture Building in 1969 and the 1972 publication of 'Learning from Las Vegas' contributed to a questioning of Rudolph's Modernist aesthetics during the 1970's. The amount of work declined, with most of the projects being private residences and a few large commissions. Rudolph continued to explore themes of scale and modularity, with a special emphasis on the experience of scale with regard to highrise buildings.
