"New Haven is unique among American cities in the success of its wide range of renewal, redevelopment, and building programs. Energetic political leadership and an enlightened University policy, both in full swing by the middle 1950's, resulted in a major transformation within the following decade.... From among the hundreds of buildings erected during this prolific period, there emerges a substantial number that appear architecturally significant—some as statements unto themselves, others as reflections of their environmental and programmatic circumstances.... Represented within this selection are some of the greatest architects and undoubtedly some of the finest buildings of our era."
