A Time of Heroics: Paul Rudolph and Yale, 1958–1965, Robert A.M. Stern
October 10, 2019
Robert A.M. Stern will deliver this lecture at the Yale School of Architecture as part of Yale School of Architecture’s Fall Lecture Series. The presentation will focus on Paul Rudolph’s (1918–1997) tenure as Chairman of the Department of Architecture at Yale University's School of Art and Architecture from 1958 to 1965, a high point in his career as an educator and as an architect, addressing his efforts to assemble a faculty representing diverse viewpoints. Stern studied architecture at Yale under Rudolph from 1960 to 1965, during which time Rudolph realized his masterful Art and Architecture Building (1963). As Dean of the Yale School of Architecture from 1998 to 2016, Stern supervised the renovation that led to its 2008 rededication as Rudolph Hall.
Robert A.M. Stern, the founder and senior partner of Robert A.M.

He is a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and a member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters. Stern has lectured extensively in the United States and abroad on both historical and contemporary topics in architecture.
