Yale Center for British Art, Yale University

Louis Kahn
1972-77



This four-story museum and study center is located on one of New Haven's busy shopping streets; thus it incorporates shops on the ground level. Built of stainless and concrete, it is elegantly simple. Natural light, through skylights and shaded windows, illuminates the interior.
