Stern designed according to the Rogers model, have a very high bar to meet and some tough questions to confront: Do they refresh the Gothic tradition, as Rogers did, or are they a pastiche? Does it make sense for Yale, which claims to prize diversity and inclusion, to replicate the physical world of Rogers' day, when the university's student body was largely WASP and male?</p></em><br /><br /><p>When expanding, most university campuses follow the strategy of <a href="https://archinect.com/news/article/150023713/christopher-hawthorne-reviews-la-s-newly-opened-usc-village-development-equal-parts-disneyland-and-hogwarts" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">replicating</a> the already established style of the existing architecture.
