"Has any major academic structure ever sustained as much abuse, both rhetorical and physical, as Paul Rudolph's 1963 Art and Architecture Building at Yale University? Yale has resisted the temptation of the wrecking ball and given Rudolph's work the respect it arguably always deserved. A two-part effort by New York firm Gwathmey Siegel, comprising a renovation largely adhering to Rudolph's original ideas and the design of a new companion building to house the art history department, is breathing new life into Rudolph's building, and by extension into the entire tradition he represents."
