FEATURES:
In September, Yale's famed Art & Architecture Building -- Paul Rudolph's controversial tribute to a tougher, more creative modernism -- reopens following a complete renovation. Not only will the renamed Rudolph Building have air-conditioning, but its concrete corduroy towers will be accessorized with an addition by Gwathmey Siegel & Associates Architects.
Yale's new Sculpture Building tries to balance a more city-friendly approach to the University's traditional campus courtyards. Photography by Enzo Figueres.
