The Yale School of Architecture has announced an exhibition, “The Structure of Light: Richard Kelly and the Illumination of Modern Architecture,” to be held August 23 through October 2, 2010 at Paul Rudolph Hall, Yale School of Architecture Gallery, 180 York St., New Haven, CT. The exhibit is accessible M-F, 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM and Saturday, 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM (closed Sundays).

Displaying a selection of drawings and photographs, largely from the Kelly Papers held at Yale’s Manuscripts & Archives collection, the exhibition is a celebration of the 100th birthday of one the most successful and influential lighting designers in the history of modern architecture. Kelly, who graduated from the Department of Architecture of Yale University’s School of the Fine Arts in 1944, has more than 300 lighting projects to his credit, among them the Lake Shore Drive Apartments in Chicago and the Seagram Building in New York, both designed by Mies van der Rohe; Philip Johnson’s Four Seasons restaurant, the New York State Theater, the Wiley House, in Westport, CT, and Johnson’s own Glass House, in New Canaan, CT.

The exhibit is open to the general public and admission is free.
