Alex Miller Residence, Sarasota, FL, 1954 Project Not Built


"This project is situated around a loosely-defined courtyard bounded by a carport, the main house, and a thin wooden framework connecting the two major programmatic volumes. This single unified composition extends outward toward the dock and the perspectival vanishing point placed along the horizon. Rudolph attempts to link the object-like Greek revival plan of the main house to the surrounding landscape by defining a procession from the carpet, through the courtyard and house, out toward the water beyond."
