The architecture of Richard Levin
Paul Needham Yale Daily News April 16, 2009

Levin has had to learn about architecture on the job. He never took an architecture class as an undergraduate at Stanford, but he did take art history. Stern said the president “sees clearly and makes the right decision almost invariably.”

But with two new residential colleges, the new SOM campus and a number of other projects on hold because of the recession, the jury is still out on Levin’s architectural legacy.

This much, though, is undeniable: Levin has come a long way since he cut the ribbon at Luce Hall.
