Robert A.M. Stern to Speak at Yale School of Architecture Symposium

6:30 pm
Hastings Hall, Paul Rudolph Building
180 York Street, New Haven, Connecticut 06511

Robert A.M. Stern will present the keynote lecture "Pedagogy and Place: Celebrating 100 Years of Architecture at Yale" at Yale School of Architecture's symposium "Learning/Thinking/Doing: Educating Architects in the 21st Century." The lecture is in conjunction with the publication of a book and exhibition at the Yale School of Architecture Gallery that runs until May 7.

Marking the centennial of the 1916 establishment of a professional program, Pedagogy and Place is the definitive text on the history of the Yale School of Architecture. Robert A. M. Stern, current dean of the school, and Jimmy Stamp examine its growth and change over the years and trace the impact of those who taught or studied there, as well as the architecturally significant buildings that housed the program, on the evolution of architecture education at Yale. Owing to the impressive number of notable practitioners who have attended or been affiliated with the school, this book also contributes a history, beyond Yale, of the architecture profession in the twentieth century. Featuring extensive archival research and illuminating firsthand accounts from alumni, faculty, and administrators, this well-rounded and engaging narrative is richly illustrated with historic photos of the school and its studios, images of student work, and important architectural achievements on and off campus.

The symposium, convened by Eeva-Liisa Pelkonen, brings together scholars, educators, architects, and administrators to evaluate inherited models, discuss current trends, and speculate about future challenges of architectural education.
