Yale School of Architecture Site

While the Yale School of Architecture website had always set itself apart from the websites of other architecture schools by its sheer intuiveness in navigation and ease of use, its design and presentation had become dated. It also lacked an easy or elegant way to present student work and studio life/culture—a very key feature in drawing interest in a school.

Yale's architecture school had always maintained a metamorphic but recognizable identity; perhaps best seen in Michael Bierut's successful series of event posters for the school. Drawing from that strong black and white aesthetic, the site aims to update the old design as well as provide a new framework for expandability without sacrificing the straightforwardness of the old site.
