Fullham Residence, Newtown, PA, 1959


A most obscure commission by Paul Rudolph, it has only recently come to scholar's attention.
"I first heard about the Fullham house in Newtown, PA, when they telephoned the Rudolph Foundation after having seen an article in the Times about the demolition of the Westport, CT house. They were contemplating having to finally move from the house and were concerned that it might fall into the wrong hands. The Foundation then contacted me and I was the extremely lucky one-and-only photographer to ever photograph that house. It was completed in 1959 and the couple requested that Rudolph not publicize any info about it, which is the reason why even the Foundation was unaware of its existence."
