Yale University Art Gallery – 1953

The Yale University Art Gallery, located on the Chapel Street between York and High streets, represents two different phases of Yale architecture. Architect Edgerton Swartwout designed the older “Tuscan Romanesque” section of the gallery, completed in 1928 and distinguished by the neo-Gothic arched windows and Art Deco bridge over High Street. The modern wing, designed by Louis I. Kahn, opened alongside Swartwout’s building in 1953, expanding the Gallery along Chapel Street.
