About Yale University School of Architecture

The Yale School of Architecture adopts as basic policy a pluralistic approach to the teaching of architecture. Students have opportunities to become well acquainted with a wide range of contemporary design approaches. The School does not seek to impose any single design philosophy, but rather encourages in each student the development of discernment and an individual approach to design.

The School offers graduate-level professional education and advanced research opportunities in architecture and allied design fields. An undergraduate major in architecture is offered exclusively to Yale College students. In order to further the pursuit of a variety of interests within the study of architecture, the curriculum offers opportunities for study in several interrelated fields.

Dynamic Interrelationship between the Evolution of the Structural Systems and Façade Design in Tall Buildings
Mar 2018 – International Journal of High-Rise Buildings Volume 7 Number 1; Kyoung Sun Moon, Yale University School of Architecture
The emergence of tall buildings in the late 19th century was possible by using new materials and separating the role of structures and that of non-structural walls from the traditional load-bearing walls that acted as both. The role of structures is…
Diagrid Systems for Structural Design of Complex-Shaped Tall Buildings
1 Dec 2016 – International Journal of High-Rise Buildings Volume 5 Number 4; Kyoung Sun Moon, Yale University School of Architecture
Today’s architectural design trend based on the recognition of pluralism has led to multiple design directions for all building types including tall buildings. This contemporary design trend has produced many complex-shaped tall buildings, such as…
Diagrid Structural System for High-Rise Buildings: Applications of a Simple Stiffness-based Optimized Design
1 Dec 2016 – International Journal of High-Rise Buildings Volume 5 Number 4; Simos Gerasimidis, Panos Pantidis & Brendan Knickle, University of Massachusetts; Kyoung Sun Moon, Yale University School of Architecture
The ingenuity of structural engineers in the field of tall and super-tall buildings has led to some of the most remarkable inventions. During this evolution of structural engineering concepts in the last 100 years, the technical challenges that…
Integrated and Sustainable Damping Systems for Tall Buildings
16 Sep 2014 – CTBUH 2014 Shanghai Conference Proceedings; Kyoung Sun Moon, Yale University School of Architecture
Integrated damping systems for tall buildings are studied to mitigate wind-induced vibration of tall buildings. First, vertically distributed multiple tuned mass damper (TMD) systems are investigated in comparison with the conventional TMD systems.…
Comparative Evaluation of Structural Systems for Tilted Tall Buildings
May 2014 – International Journal of High-Rise Buildings Volume 3 Number 2; Kyoung Sun Moon, Yale University
Employing tilted forms in tall buildings is a relatively new architectural phenomenon, as are the cases with the Gate of Europe Towers in Madrid and the Veer Towers in Las Vegas. This paper studies structural system design options for tilted tall…
Sustainable Structural Design of Contemporary Tall Buildings of Various Forms
Sep 2012 – CTBUH 2012 9th World Congress, Shanghai; Kyoung Sun Moon, Yale University School of Architecture
As a building’s height increases, the required amount of structural material to resist lateral loads increases drastically. This paper investigates optimal configurations and comparative efficiency between modern structural systems for tall buildings…
