Restoring Kahn’s Gallery, and Reclaiming a Corner of Architectural History, at Yale Nicolai Ouroussoff, New York Times, December 11, 2006

“The restoration of the Yale University Art Gallery reawakens one of America’s great architectural beauties from a slumber that has lasted too long. Like the return of a long-lost friend, however, it may resurrect a few old wounds.”

Paul Rudolph’s Art & Architecture Building, the once and future home of the Arts Library, is mentioned here as well, “The renovation is likely to shed new light on the interplay between Kahn’s and Rudolph’s visions. ..When finished, the building should feel as audacious as it did four decades ago, a delicious counterpart to Kahn’s restrained elegance.”
