Knights of Columbus Museum, New Haven, CT

Originally the Community Services Building, this elaborate, interwoven structure sits at the corner of State and Fair Streets in New Haven. It was built in 1965 by Douglas Orr, deCossy, Winder & Associates. Work by the firm as well as Orr separately are prolific around New Haven. The building has multiple access points including a raised entrance and parking garage in basement. A great aerial shot can be seen here. The complex is now the Knights of Columbus Museum (since 1982) and sits very near to the towering Knights of Columbus office building by Roche Dinkeloo and Associates (to be featured in a future post).
