Green Hall, Yale University, New Haven, CT

This building at 1156 Chapel Street has an evolving history. Although it was originally constructed as the Jewish Community Center in 1952 by the world renowned Louis Kahn (with an assist by Abramowitz–who has been covered here before-and Weinstein), it is now largely gutted behind the facade. It currently exists as Yale School of Art, redesigned in 1999 by Deborah Berke, a well-known Yale faculty member.

Berke also designed this new building on the street behind at 353 Crown Street, which while new (2000), definitely has some mid-century feeling.
