Two volume catalog set for the exhibition 'Paul Rudolph: The Personal Laboratory' and 'Paul Rudolph: The Hong Kong Journey'

Title: Paul Rudolph: The Personal Laboratory

Paul Rudolph (1918-1997) was one of America’s greatest Modern architects. Rudolph was famous for his strong, expressive forms, powerful spaces, and innovative uses of materials & light. He achieved great success doing buildings all over the US, and is most famous for his “Mid-Century Modern” work in the 1950’s-60’s---of which the Yale Art & Architecture Building in New Haven is the internationally famous iconic example. A very prolific designer—in both architecture and interiors—his active career extended to nearly the end of the 20th century, and across the decades he continued developing his aesthetic and experimenting with space & materials.

Celebrating Rudolph’s 100th birthday, this catalog is the official publication of the centennial exhibition: Paul Rudolph: The Personal Laboratory. This exhibit focused on how Rudolph used his own residences as places for experimentation with space, materials, and light—truly as “laboratories” of architecture and interior design. From these experiments—in his own spaces—Rudolph took ideas & design lessons which he then used in architectural and interior projects for his clients.

The exhibition included a variety of drawings, photographs, documents, and artifacts. Many of them have never been exhibited or published before, or have been seen very rarely (and the catalog shows many of them). The catalog also includes an introductory essay, and intriguing documents about Rudolph’s life.

Title: Paul Rudolph: The Hong Kong Journey

Paul Rudolph (1918-1997) was one of America’s greatest Modern architects, whose prolific career spanned from just after World War II until nearly the end of the 20th century. A committed and creative designer, he was known for his strong, expressive forms, dynamic spaces, inventive uses of materials, and interest in urbanism. He achieved great success doing buildings all over the US, but lesser known—though equally creative & dynamic—are the many projects he designed in the last phase of his career: primarily in Asia.

Celebrating Rudolph’s 100th birthday, this catalog is the official publication of the centennial exhibition: Paul Rudolph: The Hong Kong Journey. Although Rudolph was based in the US, and had done most of his work in America, his reputation as a designer was international—and he was called upon by clients in Asia to design a variety of projects, both commercial and residential. The exhibit (and its catalog) focuses on Paul Rudolph’s work in Hong Kong. There is a special emphasis on the Bond Centre (also known as the Lippo Centre): the double-skyscraper towers that Rudolph designed, which are prominent on Hong Kong’s skyline.

This exhibit included drawings, photographs, and documents, most of which have never been exhibited or published before (or have been seen very rarely). The well-illustrated catalog includes many of them, as well as essays which put the material in historical and architectural context.
