Abstract

""Model City: Buildings and Projects by Paul Rudolph for Yale and New Haven" focuses on 13 key designs and is the first scholarly exhibition of Rudolph's work. The exhibition, on view through Feb. 6, is curated by Timothy M. Rohan, associate professor of architectural history at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, who has drawn upon a range of materials, selected primarily from the Paul Rudolph Archive at the Library of Congress.

The exhibit itself is located in one of Rudolph's most famous buildings, the Yale Art + Architecture Building (1958-1963), which has been renamed Paul Rudolph Hall after the completion of its restoration in summer 2008. "Model City: Buildings and Projects by Paul Rudolph for Yale and New Haven" is being presented in conjunction with the rededication of the building as Paul Rudolph Hall, part of Yale's new arts complex." Taken from the press release.
