Architecture celebrates a hundred

Yale first established its Department of Architecture (now the School of Architecture) in 1916, which means it’s about time for a centennial. Today, Robert A. M. Stern ’65MArch, who has been dean of architecture for 18 of those 100 years, introduced a new exhibition in the gallery at Paul Rudolph Hall titled Pedagogy and Place: Celebrating 100 Years of Architecture Education at Yale. Stern, an architectural historian as well as a practitioner, organized the exhibition along with Jimmy Stamp ’11MEnvD; it includes 100 years of student work and other artifacts, along with a concurrent exhibition on the buildings inhabited by architecture schools round the world. Stern, who will step down next year, says a recurring theme in the school’s history has been its aesthetic pluralism, which he considers something to celebrate. “We've always been criticized for having no point of view,” he said at the opening. “Viva no point of view!”
