    New Haven/Yale School of Architecture

    Hi Archinect!

    I was in New Haven today, to interview Michelle Addington. I haven't been here since I was a prospective student, so it is somehow fitting to be back now that my M.Arch.I degree is done. It was also great to spend some time with Michelle, as her work is so interesting and her move from the Harvard to Yale was one thing that I lamented while signing on at the GSD. The results of the interview will have to wait until the next issue of ArchitectureBoston, but for now, some photos from around YSOA:

    All the lamps at 90 degrees!

    Rudolph Hall.

    Rudolph Hall. <3

    Something awesome in YSOA's end of the year show.

    Looks like some Neri Oxman! But it's not.

    Yale's campus feels like another era.

    YSOA puts the light back into skylight.

    Prices you would not find in Cambridge.

    Project you would not find at the GSD.

    YSOA's patio. New Haven--at least around Yale's campus and East Rock--strikes me as picture-perfect with its mix of New England vernacular, neo-Gothic, modern, and contemporary architecture. What a sweet town. I've heard New Yorkers say that when they come through Cambridge, MA, so let's say that New Haven is to Boston what Boston is to New York, and what New York is to...Hong Kong.

    Thanks for reading!


    P.S. I am also super-excited to have my writing on flooring materials appear in June 2013's issue of Azure Magazine! Sorry, I know it's not totally legible below, but it's the largest size that the blogs allow and probably more legal-ish this way, anyways.

About this Blog

This blog was most active from 2009-2013. Writing about my experiences and life at Harvard GSD started out as a way for me to process my experiences as an M.Arch.I student, and evolved into a record of the intellectual and cultural life of the Cambridge architecture (and to a lesser extent, design/technology) community, through live-blogs. These days, I work as a data storyteller (and blogger at in San Francisco, and still post here once in a while.
