23 Beekman Place, Paul Rudolph's legendary home, was host to many famous visitors and events. One night in particular included Ray Eames, Philip Johnson, and Vincent Scully. The group had a lively back-and-forth and it created an environment that Paul wished to continue.
The Paul Rudolph Heritage Foundation is pleased to announce our ‘SpaceMaker Salon Series’ to continue a tradition that grew from Paul Rudolph’s desire to encourage debates about important issues surrounding modern architecture.
Our first salon will be led by RD Chin. He will discuss how he met Paul Rudolph and share some experiences from the period of 1981 to 1995 when he worked in Rudolph’s architectural office. Mr. Chin will also discuss how he got into Feng Shui and how this ancient art is used in today’s contemporary architectural design. He will conclude with examples from his portfolio showing Rudolph’s influence on his Feng Shui work what he learned from Rudolph about scale for his residential, commercial and urban projects.
Mr. Chin will present in the Modulightor Gallery Duplex. Limited copies of Feng Shui Revealed will be on hand for purchase and dedication over refreshments following the talk.
