Discussion Walker Guest House Commentary

"Two bays on each side of this guest cottage are filled with pivoting panels which function as
1  the enclosing wall,
2  the ventilating element,
3  the shading device,
4  the hurricane shelter.
The third bay is filled with glass, to admit light and splendid views. When the panels are closed, the pavilion is snug and cave-like, when open the space psychologically changes and one is virtually in the landscape."

— Paul Rudolph. The Architecture of Paul Rudolph. New York: Praeger Publishers, 1970. p42.
