The 1980s

By the 1980's, Rudolph began to receive several large commissions in Asia. These projects were located in primarily dense urban settings, and his work of this period focused on developing a scale and complexity necessary to relate the building to its surrounding context. Rudolph developed a tripartite expression of scale in his larger commissions to distinguish between the individual's perception of scale of the building's base, the perception from the automobile of the middle of the tower, and the top of the building from far away. As more of Rudolph's work shifted from the United States to Asia, he explored materials and building forms to relate his Modernist designs to the unique character of the regional architecture of the building's location.
