Centerbrook Architects donates archives to Yale

Centerbrook Architects of Connecticut will donate its archives to the Manuscripts and Archives Department of the Yale University Library, whose collections are a major resource for teaching architectural history, theory, and practice.

Centerbrook’s records join those of other architects and firms such as Eero Saarinen, Paul Rudolf, Louis Kahn, and James Gamble Rogers. The Centerbrook material includes work by the late Charles W. Moore, who served as dean of the Yale School of Architecture as well as a founding partner of Moore Grover and Harper, the predecessor firm of Centerbrook.

Projects being sent to Yale run the gamut from large urban and civic developments and academic buildings to private homes and cultural centers. Founded in 1975, the firm has garnered more than 325 awards for design excellence, including the 1998 Firm Award from the American Institute of Architects.

Founded in 1975, Centerbook has worked on projects NASA, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, and universities such as Quinnipiac. The Centerbrook archive at Yale will include design work for independent schools, such as Andover, Hotchkiss, and Choate; colleges and universities, including Yale, University of Colorado, and Texas A&M; performing arts centers; art museums at Dartmouth and Williams colleges, and sports facilities and arenas.
