Mary Cooper Jewett Art Center, Wellesley College

Paul Rudolph

One of Rudolph's earliest large commissioned buildings, the Jewett Art Center is closer to the "decorated-box" school of architecture (associated with Yamasaki and E. D. Stone) than to his later more monumental and sculptural buildings.
