Rudolph Hall & Loria Center – LEED Gold

Erected in 1963 to house the Yale School of Architecture, Rudolph Hall  is the Brutalist masterwork of Paul Rudolph, who was dean of the school at the time. A recent comprehensive renovation and expansion project focused on rehabilitating the 122,150 square foot Rudolph Hall and adding a new building, the 85,800 square foot Loria Center. Completed in the fall of 2008, the project received a LEED Gold rating from the US Green Building Council for its comprehensive renovation.

Sustainable features of the building include low-flow bathroom and kitchen fixtures, dual flush toilets, waterless urinals, a greywater capture and reuse system, large windows and skylights for natural light, sustainable certified wood, use of low volatile organic compounds (VOC) building and finishing materials, and a ninety-two percent reduction in construction debris.
