Yale University is one of America’s most revered educational institutions and campus communities, featuring more than three centuries of historic architecture by notable modern masters such as Louis I. Kahn, Paul Rudolph, and Eero Saarinen. Yale University: The Campus Guide, second edition, updates and expands the original Yale Campus Guide (1998) to present the important $2 billion investment during the 1999–2012 period, an era of breathless expansion in educational and research programs, fund-raising, and new building in fifteen projects. Author and photographer Patrick L. Pinnell takes readers on an insider’s tour revealing the stories behind more than one hundred buildings, gardens, art galleries, theaters, athletic facilities, and works of sculpture.
Yale University: The Campus Guide, revised edition, showcases newly completed campus landmarks by contemporary architects Koetter Kim & Associates; Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects; Centerbrook; Bohlin Cywinski; Deborah Berke; Charles Gwathmey; Robert A. M. Stern and Associates; Turner Brooks; and Shepley Bulfinch.
Stunning contemporary photographs by Pinnell are augmented by rare archival photographs and drawings to recapture fragments of lost buildings and recall notable historic moments.
This Campus Guide is organized in ten self-guided Walks and exquisitely illustrated in three-dimensional aerial maps by Tom Gastel that locate feature buildings.
Alumni will delight in novel insights about their alma mater; visitors will cherish the in-depth knowledge to take home; and parents and patrons will find reason for gratitude in the value of their investment.
