Synopses & Reviews
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, examines its growth and change over the years, tracing 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. Owing to the impressive number of notable practitioners who have attended or been affiliated with the school, it also contributes a history, beyond Yale, of the architecture profession in the 20th 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.
