In these photos, which were taken in 1954, Robert Stern is smoking from his self-designed cigarette holders. These unusual cigarette holders are pretty wacky and we just had to present them to you! But just to be clear, FSC crew does not support smoking!
Robert Arthur Morton Stern (born May 23, 1939) is an American architect and Dean of the Yale University School of Architecture. His work is generally classified as postmodern, though a more useful classification would be a particular emphasis on context and the continuity of traditions. He may have been the first architect to use the term “postmodernism”, but more recently he has used the phrase “modern traditionalist” to describe his work.
