Art Daily on Yale’s Arts Complex

Yale University Has Newly Completed Arts Complex Designed by Charles Gwathmey Art Daily 10.11.08

“Work on Paul Rudolph Hall included a mix of literal restoration, interpretive renovation, and sensitive intervention, all sympathetic to Rudolph’s vision. Mr. Gwathmey restored open spaces that had been fractured, revived views that had long been blocked by prior renovations and ill-placed partitions, recaptured Rudolph’s concept for the building’s fenestration—using replacement windows made with contemporary technology and materials—and restored the exterior walls….The library that was originally in the building has been vastly expanded and transformed, as the University’s art, architecture, and drama libraries and its arts of the book collections—previously located in separate buildings across campus—are now integrated into a single, comprehensive resource. The new Robert B. Haas Family Arts Library straddles the two buildings of the arts complex at the ground-floor level.”
