I have had the privilege to visit a few houses not normally open to the public; I thought I had been in the most beautiful house in the world last summer when I toured the Maison de Verre; This fall I was a guest in Michelle Kaufmann's fabulous Glidehouse.
But I just found Paul Rudolph's Walker Guest House to be a gem, a prototype for a lighter, more minimal and elegant way of designing. And at least this Rudolph house has an owner who cares; this one won't go to the dump.
Thanks again to Elaine Walker and Carla Murray for giving me this wonderful opportunity.
