Every cute little beach house on Sanibel Island has been knocked down and replaced with a monster mansion, most of them quite ugly and excessive, and probably half of them with for sale signs in front. Therefore I was surprised to find Paul Rudolph's Walker Guest House still standing. Many of Rudolph's buildings are gone (see Why Are So Many Paul Rudolph Buildings Being Torn Down?) But the Walker Guest House survives, a testament to its owner.
