Original rendering for a concept for the Yale Art and Architecture Building
Notice how the top drawing conceived of a building that would dominate the corner of York and Chapel streets. And note how skillfully Rudolph uses different pencil line weights to evoke the building's brushhammered surface. In the bottom drawing, the garage has a completely different relationship with the streets, a fact made more poignant by the fact that the building works better in a less-dense urban fabric.
These drawings are not only a testament to Rudolph's skill, but they are a sad reminder of how much New Haven has changed.
