An Unfortunate Pairing?

Architects Gwathmey Siegel to expand Paul Rudolph's iconic Yale Art & Architecture Building. The 87,000 sf addition, being done in conjunction with Robert Stern - the dean of the school, is to serve as part of a $125 million dollar face lift of the original building. The renovation seeks to restore many of the interior spaces which had been altered over the years and the replacement of current fenestration in favour of windows closer to those designed by Rudolph. The addition in contrast to the brutalist exterior of the original will be clad in limestone and zinc, seeking to create a dialog with Rudolph's building.

Wasn't Richard Meier supposed to do that project? It was much better than this one for sure.
