Notes from the Archive: James Frazier Stirling, Architect and Teacher will offer the first ever in-depth survey of the career of British architect, Yale School of Architecture professor, and Pritzker Prize laureate James Stirling (1926–1992). Stirling earned international acclaim through bold and innovative projects such as the Leicester University Engineering building (1959–63); the History Faculty building at Cambridge University (1964–67); the Neue Staatsgalerie, Stuttgart (1977–84); the Clore Gallery for the Turner Collection at Tate Britain (1984); and the Arthur M. Sackler Museum at Harvard University (1979–84).

More than three hundred of his original architectural drawings, models, and photographs drawn from the James Stirling/Michael Wilford Archive at the Canadian Centre for Architecture, Montréal (CCA) are featured in the Center’s exhibition. Together the works reveal the range of Stirling’s approach to architectural languages as well as the fundamental importance of British architecture to his work.
