Loria Center + Rudolph Hall

Yale School of Architecture, Rudolph Hall

Built in 1963 to house the Yale School of Architecture, Rudolph Hall is the  masterwork of Paul Rudolph, dean of the school at the time. A recent comprehensive renovation and expansion project focused on rehabilitating the 122,150 square foot Rudolph Hall and adding a new building, the 85,800 square foot Loria Center. Completed in the fall of 2008, the project received a LEED Gold rating from the US Green Building Council for its comprehensive renovation.

Sustainable features of the building include low-flow bathroom and kitchen fixtures, dual flush toilets, waterless urinals, a greywater capture and reuse system, large windows and skylights for natural light, certified sustainably-sourced wood, use of low volatile organic compounds (VOC) building and finishing materials, and a 92% reduction in construction debris.
