Library of Congress Celebrates the Centennial of Architect Paul M. Rudolph
Posted Sunday, October 21

Considered one of America’s most innovative modernist architects, Paul Marvin Rudolph donated his archive to the Library of Congress and, in October, the nation’s library will celebrate the 100th anniversary of his birth with a symposium and display of select items from his collection.

The day-long symposium will be presented on October 26 by the Center for Architecture, Design, and Engineering in the Prints & Photographs Division and the Paul Rudolph Foundation. Robert A.M. Stern will present the keynote address for this event. Various other speakers will share perspectives on the life of Paul M. Rudolph and his archive which is housed at the Library of Congress.

The event is free and open to the public. A reception and tour of the Prints & Photographs Division will follow the symposium.

Iconic Examples of Rudolph's Work will be on exhibit at the Library of Congress, in the Thomas Jefferson Building, 10 First St., SE, Washington, DC, from now until November 8.

Rudolph’s collection is currently available to researchers by advance arrangement with the Prints and Photographs Division. Selected photographs and drawings are online here.
