Overview of New Buildings On Campus
Over the years, Yale has commissioned buildings from world-renowned architects that have become a part of New Haven’s cultural heritage. These landmark structures have catapulted New Haven into city that has become an international destination for architecture enthusiasts. Some of the favorites include Ingalls Rink, designed by Eero Saarinen, The School of Art and Architecture, designed by Paul Rudolph and the Yale University Art Gallery and Yale Center for British Art, the first and last buildings designed by the renowned Louis Kahn. Buildings still in the planning stages include the new School of Management campus, designed by Sir Norman Foster, and two new residential colleges to be designed by Robert A.M. Stern.
New Yale buildings are designed to be both integrated with their sites and neighborhoods and to be models of environmental responsibility. Kroon Hall, designed by Hopkins Architects, currently under construction on Prospect Avenue, is expected to earn a Platinum LEED rating from the US Green Building Council. The Sculpture Building on Edgewood Avenue has already received a Platinum LEED rating.
