The forms currently rising on the 4.25-acre site of the new Yale SOM campus are known as sheer walls. Designed to provide structural support to the building, they’ll hold stairways, elevators, and vents. They don’t yet present a picture of what the finished building will look like. But that will soon change.
Over the next two years, the 242,000-square-foot Edward P. Evans Hall will rise at the northern end of the Yale University campus. The building, with a striking modern design, glass façade, and large courtyard, will serve as the home for the Yale School of Management and will take its place among the architectural landmarks that already distinguish the Yale campus.
