Ralph Rapson, former dean of the University’s School of Architecture (1954-1984), was the designer of iconic Twin Cities buildings such as the original Guthrie Theater, Cedar Square West, and the Rarig Center for the Performing Arts.

Still a practicing architect when he died in 2008 at the age of 93, Rapson’s modernist style influenced generations of architects. This exhibit is a retrospective of his many building and furniture designs.
