The first collection of writings by one of the most innovative architects and educators of the 1950s and 1960s, this book incles a wealth of recently discovered archival materials and many previously unpublished photographs. Featured texts incle a selection of Paul Rolph’s published critical writings, which cover such topics as Rolph’s views about the architecture and city planning of his time and the proper way to educate an architectural stent. Recent controversies about the preservation of many of Rolph’s buildings—incling the landmark Art and Architecture Building at Yale, which celebrates its 45th anniversary and grand reopening in November 2008—make this a timely publication.

“… full of good sense.” - Andrew Mead, Architects’ Journal  

Paul Rolph (1918–1997) was chair of the Yale School of Architecture from 1958 to 1967. He designed projects for institutions and corporations worldwide, developing a personal and distinctive organization of space and gaining renown for his Brutalist concrete structures.
