Description

The Oriental Masonic Gardens in New Haven was a modular housing project designed by Paul Rudolph and built by Prince Hall Masons. In this project, residences were grouped in fours around a utility core. Lower modules contained living spaces, with two or three bedrooms in a second module above. The project experienced a series of setbacks and was not well received by inhabitants, who complained of leaks. The project was demolished in 1981.
