The Story of Yale's Kroon Hall

Yale University has produced an engaging and informative video about Kroon Hall, examining how the new home for the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies was planned, designed and built to LEED Platinum standards (and beyond).

Opened last year, Kroon Hall has drawn rave reviews from the general and architectural media – and, more importantly, from its inhabitants. The building was designed by Hopkins Architects of London in collaboration with Centerbrook Architects. Mark Simon, FAIA, was the Centerbrook partner in charge for the project. Stay tuned for an upcoming post by Jim Coan, AIA, one of the members of the Centerbrook project team, who writes about the challenges of translating British architecture and terms into an American context. It’s a Tale of Two Languages.
