He attended the architecture school at the Alabama Polytechnic Institute in Auburn, and after graduating in 1940 he entered the Harvard Graduate School of Design, where he studied under Walter Gropius, the former head of the Bauhaus in Germany. After receiving his master’s degree from Harvard in 1947, he spent the next year traveling in Europe (on a Wheelwright Scholarship), where he began to develop a strong interest in urban design, a subject which he felt had been neglected in his education under Gropius.(wiki)[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

“I want to put homes in the sky,” said Rudolph of the ill-fated project. “Psychologically, it makes a great deal of difference for people living closely together in cities.” (b. Elkton, Kentucky 1918; d. 1997)

Rudolph has displayed an interest in the problems of urban design and completed a succession of unexecuted projects. Preoccupied with the notion of an industrialized “plug-in” city, he has devised schemes in which mobile residence pods are plugged into a steel frame which connects to mechanical and electrical services.Rudolph’s work exhibits a highly personal and uncompromising style. Although his works qualify as part of the Modern Movement, he has questioned the validity of the movement’s precepts in his later works. (Encyclopedia of World Biography)

His work is figurative, his principal medium is pen-and-ink (or pen and diluted root-beer concentrate, a solution he discovered by accident and which can make his drawings look as if they are made in blood), and in his early days, at least, he wouldn’t sign his work but saw it as a collaborative effort by himself and a few friends. After a group exhibition in Los Angeles, his drawings were shown at the Berlin Art Fair, where they attracted the New York gallery owner David Zwirner, who took on Dzama and exhibited 300 drawings at his Soho gallery in the spring of 1998. Dzama was 23…”  (Read more on FT.com)[/vc_column_text][grve_media_box media_type=”image-video-popup” video_link=”https://vimeo.com/12836664″ map_lat=”51.516221″ map_lng=”-0.136986″ map_zoom=”14″ map_height=”280″ align=”left” animation_delay=”200″ image=”4631″][/grve_media_box][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row heading_color=”” section_type=”fullwidth-background” flex_height=”” section_full_height=”no” bg_type=”” bg_image_type=”” pattern_overlay=”” color_overlay=”” opacity_overlay=”10″ header_feature=”” footer_feature=”” desktop_visibility=”” tablet_visibility=”” tablet_sm_visibility=”” mobile_visibility=”” seperator_indeed_locker=”Indeed Social Locker” lk_sl=”” lk_t=”” lk_la=”horizontal” lk_dc=”true” lk_dfn=”true” lk_lt=”2″ lk_etl=”0″ lk_tl=”30″ lk_nru=”0″ lk_rl=”0″ lk_lra=”30″ lk_lrt=”days” lk_io=”” lk_lp=”50″ lk_dm=”0″ lk_thm=”0″ lk_tuo=”0″ lk_dt=” “][vc_column width=”1/1″ desktop_hide=”” tablet_width=”” tablet_sm_width=”” mobile_width=””][dzs_parallaxer media=”https://secureservercdn.net/104.238.71.250/qzx.c30.myftpupload.com/wp-content/uploads/marcel-dzama-gotta-make-room.jpg” clip_height=”600″ total_height=”1000″ mode=”normal” enable_scrollbar=”off” breakout=”off” direction=”normal”][/dzs_parallaxer][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text animation_delay=”200″]
