  • [New Haven] Temple Street Garage - Paul Rudolph

    According to New Haven information website:

    This massive parking garage spans Temple Street betweeen Crown Street and North Frontage Road. The balustrade (about 800 feet long) is punctuated at the double columns. One is reminded of the Roman aqueducts by the boldness of this poured-in-place concrete structure designed by Paul Rudolph in 1962. He appears to pay homage to New Haven's sea port history, as Rudolph's design combined flowing parabolic curved overhead and vertical concrete surfaces and a unique wooden shiplap texture to convey the stately feel of classic sailing ships.

    Address:
    21 Temple Street, New Haven, CT

    How to get there:
    From New Haven Union Station, catch the free Bus 89 that goes to NH Green. It also stops at the Temple Street Garage.

    The carpark is accessible 24hours but security will most likely chase you around. They claim that even if you were to do a sketch, you would need permission from the owners of the carpark which is based near Union Station. Needless to say, photography is not allowed, not even for Yale students of Architecture.

    Absolutely ridiculous!

              The roof with the crazy concrete lights!

              You can also see the Knights of Columbus tower by Kevin Roche in the background of the 2nd shot.

                      Stunning. The colonnade in Singapore has an interesting layering of spaces and exposed structure...really like it
