Walker Guest House - Paul Rudolf

El riguroso orden de cuatro cuadrados del interior, crea un contrapunto a la organización exterior. Cada uno de los cuadrantes interiores se dividen en zonas funcionales como sala, comedor, servicio y dormitorio, percibiendo otros arreglos interiores semejantes a los barcos de Rudolph.

La casa se distingue por sus contraventanas de madera y el sistema de pesos y aparejos que se utiliza para abrir y cerrar dichas ventanas. Estos artilugios en forma de barco trajeron el modernismo fresco de la casa cerca de su contexto de la playa con la brisa de Florida. Este desafió al estilo internacional, pero también empezó a prefigurar algunas de las innovaciones arquitectónicas que vendrían más tarde, como la capacidad de ajuste que permite al usuario controlar su entorno.

A sketch of Marina City by George Charney for the Daily News, 1960, Chicago.
The Bertrand Goldberg designed towers were never meant to be 3, but Charney misinterpreted the original plans when he made his sketch. This was the erroneous rendition that went out to papers all over the country when the development was announced.
