Myers Forest

The Yale-Myers forest is a 7,800-acre forest owned by Yale University and administered by the Yale’s School of Forestry & Environmental Studies. The Yale-Myers Camp provides housing, classrooms and support facilities to faculty and students who use the forest for teaching and research.

2015 Research Laboratory Building: Designs were provided for a new research laboratory building in the adjacent wooded area of the historic French House – The building will consist of four small lab spaces within a larger space for 4 researchers and a common room. An integral part of the design is the site, which is where much of the research occurs. An adjacent field will be subdivided into small plots, each of which will contain a small pond that will support tadpole colonies.

2013 New Bunkhouse and Classroom Building: Seeing the forest through the trees: Built for Yale’s School of Forestry & Environmental Studies and located at in Eastford, this new 2,000 sq ft bunkhouse replaces an earlier version that was blown away in a 1950s hurricane. Providing sleeping quarters for sixteen and classroom space for sixty, the new building occupies the middle place of an ensemble of two other buildings.  Link here to see and read more about this project.
