Featured in Architectural Record magazine when it debuted in 1963, the house for Phillip and Eleanor Pillsbury, Jr., designed by Ralph Rapson was situated on the shores of Lake Minnetonka in Wayzata, Minnesota. Consisting of three distinct pavilions of brick, glass, and white stucco and connected by glass walkways, the house was recognized in 1990 by the Minnesota Chapter of the American Institute of Architects as an architectural masterpiece. In 1996 the new owner demolished the house and erected a suburban-style McMansion in its place.
