I read with interest Paul Goldberger's article in defense of Paul Rudolph's Yale School of Architecture building [ ''Students Come to the Aid of an Abused Building,'' Nov.20 ] . Mr. Goldberger describes it as a great work of art, albeit arrogant, that has been abused by students and past administrations. As a past student and faculty member in the building, I feel compelled to stress that Mr. Rudolph's structure is not the passive victim of aggressive abusers. It has been the aggressor upon its innocent inhabitants.
