The Elvis of Architecture Arrives

We don't know if he swivels his hips, but we can imagine a Drexel design student fainting at the sight of Robert A.M. Stern. The dean and J.M. Hoppin professor of architecture at the Yale School of Architecture, Stern cuts a large figure here, mostly due to the tower of glass that is the Comcast Center. (He also designed poor 10 Rittenhouse.) Tomorrow he'll be focusing on the way architecture transforms cities and universities. And then he'll sing "Heartbreak Hotel" about the Divine Lorraine.
