Beginning in the Spring 2018 semester, the Yale School of
Architecture Gallery launched a program to give students the
opportunity to curate and stage exhibitions. The North Gallery
was set aside to host three of these exhibitions per semester.
The content is driven by student proposals and strives to be
responsive to current interests and concerns in the school, while remaining open to the unique perspectives that stem from
the diversity of our students. The exhibits are often tied to
additional programming — lectures, dialogues, tours — and
have become a chance to share, reflect and make connections
within the school as well as with the world at large. The
program has covered a wide range of subjects and brought our
students into contact with scholars, practitioners and alumni.
This publication stems from a desire to see this work and its
reception recorded for posterity and available to a wider
audience. The continuing series will collect a sampling of the
past semester’s endeavors. Ever vigilant in his support of our
School’s legacy, it is former Dean Robert A.M. Stern’s vision
and generosity that have made this book possible. We are
deeply grateful to his continued commitment to our students.
We would like to thank the editors Christine Pan and Michael
Glassman for giving the book form and Luke Bulman for his
assistance in guiding it to publication. We appreciate and value as well the students who have embraced this opportunity and given the program its momentum. We are eager to see what
comes next and know that the School will be enriched by their efforts.
