RIP Ralph Rapson

Minnesota's greatest architect passed away over the weekend. Ralph Rapson was 93 and designed many great buildings including the original Guthrie Theatre and Rarig Center at the University.

One of my friends growing up lived near the St. Paul Campus in a neighborhood that has many homes built by University architects. Visiting my friend in his cool house helped instill in me an appreciation for modern architecture, I think.

Here's Rapson's Rarig Center:
