Rapson Cube in Architecture Week

Writers Jane King Hession, Rip Rapson and Bruce N. Wright report on Ralph Rapson's iconic Glass Cube in Architecture Week. The weekend getaway near Amery, Wisconsin was constructed in 1974 and is among the Minnesota architect's great works. The trio wrote Ralph Rapson: Sixty Years of Modern Design, a book that was released at about the time of the Weisman Art Museum and Minneapolis Institute of Arts retrospectives a few years ago. While noodling around the web, I also found a insightful profile on Rapson by writer Burl Gilyard. And then there's a Q & A with Rapson on the MPR website. (Photo by Ralph Rapson)
