In this lecture, Timothy M. Rohan from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, discusses the exhibition he curated, "Model City: Buildings and Projects by Paul Rudolph for Yale and New Haven," which draws upon works from the Paul Rudolph Archive in the Prints and Photographs Division of the Library of Congress.
Paul Rudolph (1918-1997) was one of the most innovative American architects of the post-World War II period. The exhibition situates 13 works for Yale and New Haven by Rudolph in the context of postwar modernism, urban renewal and their aftermath. The exhibition was timed to coincide with the restoration of Rudolph's best-known structure, the Yale Art and Architecture Building (1958-1963, and rededicated as Rudolph Hall.
