The Dickinson Duo: Hidden Architecture in New Haven

Surprisingly, there is a Frank Gehry in New Haven.

Architectural superstar Frank Gehry celebrated his 90th birthday this week. Perhaps most notable is the fact that so few of us in New Haven know that the Pritzker Prize winner designed a building here. He did it in 1989. For Yale (who else?). Who knows?

New Haven boasts the work of architects Louis Kahn, Eero Saarinen, Paul Rudolph, Philip Johnson – and many others. There are dozens of “important” modern masterpieces in a city of 120,000 people. You could argue that these great modern builders left New Haven with more “distinctive” buildings per capita than anywhere else in the world. But Frank Gehry, equally famous in our culture, has one too.
