Kieran_Timberlake_Yale_01The Yale Sculpture Building and Gallery complex is composed of three new buildings; the four-story Sculpture Building, the single-story storefront Gallery, and the four-story parking garage with retail space at the ground floor. While the Gallery and parking structure define the perimeter of the block, the sculpture building is slightly set back and forms the core of the project.

As its name suggest, the 51,000 sq. ft. Sculpture Building is home for the Sculpture programs of Yale’s School of Art. Three floors of individual and group fourteen-foot-high studios flooded with natural light, sit on top of the ground floor and basement that host the classrooms, workshops, administrative spaces and utilities. The architects opted for an exposed steel-frame structure, a modern reinterpretation of the loft. This approach yielded open flexible spaces capable of changing with time and accommodating a wide range of activities.
