About Paul Rudolph
Born in 1918, Paul Rudolph studied with Bauhaus architect Walter Gropius at Harvard Graduate School of Design and was later Dean of the School of Architecture at Yale University. Buildings of his design can be found in cities around the world, including Sarasota, Boston, Fort Worth, Singapore, Hong Kong and Jakarta. Rudolph was the lead figure in the Sarasota School of Architecture and one of the most influential architects in all of Florida in the 1950s. He continued to design buildings into the 1990s, and died in 1997 at the age of 79.



Paul Rudolph Drawing of the Sarasota High School Addition, 1958

The Sarasota High School Addition was commissioned in 1958 as part of a progressive public school construction campaign directed by Philip Hiss, chair of the Board of Public Instruction. Paul Rudolph's design for the expansion reflects a transition from the highly transparent structures of his mid-century practice to the more sculptural and textural forms of his later Brutalist Style work, exemplified by the Yale School of Art and Architecture Building (1963) where he served as Dean of the School of Architecture.

— Morris Hylton III, Assistant Professor of Interior Design; Director of Historic Preservation, College of Design, Construction and Planning, University of Florida
