For his recently published book with Columbia College Chicago Press, photographer Chris Mottalini documented the demolition of three midcentury houses designed by architect Paul Rudolph. The first, which appears on the book cover, is the Micheels House (1972) in Westport, Connecticut. He writes about the image, "The damage in this photograph occurred when I was away from the house, having some lunch and waiting for the light to change. The vandalism was most likely in response to preservation efforts." Photo by Chris Mottalini.
