The Yale School of Architecture is one of the constituent professional schools of Yale University. It is generally considered to be one of the most prestigious architecture schools in the world.
Robert Arthur Morton Stern, usually credited as Robert A. M. Stern (born May 23, 1939), is a New York City and New Haven based American architect, professor, and academic writer. He is currently the Dean of the Yale School of Architecture. He also heads his own architecture firm, Robert A. M. Stern Architects, often referred to as RAMSA.
Stern is a representative of New Urbanism and New Classical Architecture, with a particular emphasis on urban context and the continuity of traditions. He may have been the first architect to use the term "postmodernism," but more recently he has used the phrase "Modern traditionalist" to describe his work. In 2011, Stern was honored with the renownedDriehaus Architecture Prize for his achievements in contemporary classical architecture. Some of his firm's major works include New York City's new classical 15 Central Park West, and the late modern Comcast Center skyscraper in Philadelphia.
