First Fridays series: “Finding God at Yale”
Faculty from the various graduate and professional schools share how their faith has affected their work and life here at Yale.
Tonight featuring Kyle Dugdale, Yale School of Architecture
Kyle Dugdale is Critic in Architecture at Yale School of Architecture. A graduate of Oxford, Harvard and Yale, he is interested both in the philosophical pretexts of architecture and in the architectural presumptions of philosophy. His doctoral dissertation, entitled “Architecture After the Death of God” and awarded Yale University’s Field Prize, examined the persistence of the Tower of Babel as a paradigm within the narratives of both disciplines, devoting particular attention to Babylon’s resurgence in the twentieth century as a figure tied to the peculiar anxieties of modernity.
