Marking the centennial of the 1916 establishment of a professional program, Pedagogy and Place is the definitive text on the history of the Yale School of Architecture. Robert A. M. Stern, current dean of the school, and Jimmy Stamp examine its growth and change over the years, and they trace the impact of those who taught or studied there, as well as the architecturally significant buildings that housed the program, on the evolution of architecture education at Yale. Owing to the impressive number of notable practitioners who have attended or been affiliated with the school, this book also contributes a history, beyond Yale, of the architecture profession in the twentieth century. Featuring extensive archival research and illuminating firsthand accounts from alumni, faculty, and administrators, this well-rounded and engaging narrative is richly illustrated with historic photos of the school and its studios, images of student work, and important architectural achievements on and off campus.

Robert A. M. Stern, founder and senior partner of Robert A. M. Stern Architects, is dean of the Yale School of Architecture and has served in that role since 1998. Jimmy Stamp is a writer at Robert A. M. Stern Architects whose work has appeared in The Guardian, Smithsonian, and the Journal of Architecture Education

"To say that this book will be the definitive publication on its subject for the foreseeable future is an understatement. A rich work of remarkable scholarship, Pedagogy and Place is a superb case study of American architecture education and a genuine contribution to the literature of architecture.”—Joan Ockman, University of Pennsylvania School of Design

“If you want to know the history of the Yale School of Architecture, you’d be hard pressed to ask anyone more knowledgeable than Robert A.M. Stern . . . Pedagogy and Place is a tribute from the erudite and prolific author to his alma mater and academic home for the last 18 years . . . [with] lively text and carefully curated archival images.”—James Gauer, Architectural Record
