According to Dexigner, a website about design related news and events, the completely renovated and expanded Paul Rudolph Hall at Yale University designed by Gwathmey Siegel & Associates Architects (GSAA) has received a LEED Gold certification:
The 114,000 square foot building, constructed of cast-in-place concrete in the Brutalist style, was formerly known as the Art and Architecture Building.According to previous reports from Yale, the building originally was intended to be LEED Silver.
It was designed by then chair of the Department of Architecture, Paul Rudolph and completed in 1963.
GSAA's design results from the integration of programmatic, structural and mechanical needs.
It includes the restoration of exterior walls, the installation of historically correct windows, and upgrades to all building facilities including the exhibition gallery, jury and studio spaces, study areas, and administrative and faculty offices.
It also introduces new lighting and furnishings throughout, in many cases replicating the originals, and brings the structure into compliance with current building and fire codes.
