Small Courtyard, New Residential Colleges

$ 15,000,000   5 opportunities

In addition to the large courtyard that anchors each college, a network of small courtyards provides an organizing scheme for the student living areas, in which student suites are grouped around shared entryways rather than hallways. Two small courtyards are located in Pauli Murray College and three in the Benjamin Franklin College. Each courtyard will display a distinctive character and inviting landscape characteristic of Yale's well-established colleges. Emulating the strategies of James Gamble Rogers, courtyards are designed with lower buildings on the south and higher buildings on the north, to maximize airflow and sunlight.
