In time we’ll probably get used to the Loria Center

Q&A: Scully talks Rudolph, art history Esther Zuckerman – November 11, 2008 – Yale Daily News

“It’s very difficult to add on to a building like Rudolph’s. I, and a lot of other people, would have done it very differently. But it’s easy to criticize, and it works very well inside. The art history department’s mad for it. They seem to like it a lot. On the outside, it’s hard to say. I think it’s a little too busy, a little too fragmented. I think it slightly deprecates the Rudolph building. The Rudolph building is such a mass: It needs something all glass. I have a nice office there. I shouldn’t complain. Frankly, the curious thing about human life is we get used to anything in time, and eventually we’ll probably get used to that. The architect [Charles Gwathmey ARC ’62] is such a nice fellow nobody wants to criticize him.”
