New Haven: An architect’s hidden mecca

“It may be easy to miss, but wedged between News Haven and Ten Thousand Villages on Chapel Street sits a door that leads to a world-class architecture firm.

“It is the office of Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects, the firm of former Yale School of Architecture Dean Cesar Pelli. And just a few blocks away, two firms that are in many ways Pelli’s offspring sit firmly planted in New Haven long after their principals received Yale degrees. Even so, the architectural renaissance that has taken place in the Elm City is not altogether surprising, given its history: John Davenport’s nine squares, plotted out in the 17th century, made New Haven the first planned city in the United States.”
