For many, traditional architecture makes Yale special

“Every year when Yale’s incoming freshmen receive their residential-college assignments, there are two words they dread: Morse and Stiles. In the early sixties, Yale hired Eero Saarinen ’34 to design two ‘radically different’ colleges. Morse and Stiles — his work — certainly are different. But very few students want to live in them. No building can be called a success if its occupants reject it. In architecture, people matter. For many, traditional architecture is part of what makes Yale special.”
