Floyd to Introduce Film for Lyme Academy

November 1st, 2016

Centerbrook Architects & Planners Partner Chad Floyd, FAIA will provide the introduction for the upcoming Lyme Academy College of the Fine Arts film on famed art and architecture historian Vincent Scully.

Floyd studied under Scully along the way to both bachelor’s and master’s degrees in architecture at Yale University. Arguably the most highly-regarded professor in the history of the Yale School of Architecture, Scully taught there full-time for more than 40 years and spent two subsequent decades as a professor emeritus.

Vincent Scully: An Art Historian Among Architects,” will be shown on Tuesday, Nov. 1 at the Katharine Hepburn Cultural Arts Center in Old Saybrook, Connecticut. The screening will begin at 5:30 p.m.

This film explores the phenomenon of Scully, tracing his connection to New Haven, his birthplace, and his time at Yale, from when he entered as a freshman in 1936 to the present. The narrative follows the arc of his interests in classical art and architecture to American architecture, historic preservation, and urban design in the 20th Century.
