Exhibition celebrates women alums

The exhibition Room(s): Yale School of Architecture Graduate Women Alums 1942— is now open at the Yale Architecture Gallery. Curated by Jessica Varner ’08MArch, ’14MEnvD, the show features the work of hundreds of women alums from the Yale School of Architecture from the classes of 1946 to 2020, with focus on the work of feminist architect Noel Phyllis Birkby ’66MArch, former New Haven mayor Toni Harp ’77MEnvD, and space architect Constance Adams ’90MArch. Originally timed to honor the university’s 50 Women at Yale 150 commemoration of the anniversaries of the first undergraduate and graduate women students, the exhibition was delayed by the onset of the global pandemic. It is now open to the Yale campus and to architecture alums who provide prior notification and proof of vaccination.

Environmental exhibition features student work

Work from the Spring 2021 design studio taught by Alan Plattus and Andrei Harwell is on display through December 1 on Nantucket Island as part of a group exhibition examining the effects and futures of sea-level rise in coastal New England. Collecting student work from five schools, Envision Resilience: Designs for Living with Rising Seas maps out strategies for surviving and even thriving in the face of climate change.
