Ralph Rapson, faia, is the most influential Minnesota architect of the modern age. Architect, artist, furniture designer, and teacher, he has played a leading role in the development and practice of contemporary architecture and design, both nationally and internationally.
Beginning in the late 1930s, at Cranbrook under Eliel Saarinen, Rapson became famous for his rapid, exquisite renderings and his creative examination of traditional furniture and housing forms. He also began a career-long involvement in architectural competitions and experimental programs that helped shape the future of modernism in America. In postwar Europe, his designs for nine U.S. embassy projects established a new international model for American buildings abroad.
In 1954 Rapson assumed leadership of the University of Minnesota's School of Architecture, beginning a thirty-year tenure that would transform not only the school itself, but the standing of the design profession within the state.
As architectural fads and fashions have come and gone, Ralph Rapson has maintained a consistency and commitment to the basic and best principals of modern architecture. He has never lost sight of the larger questions of architecture and its potential for community betterment and enrichment of the human experience.
