James Stewart Polshek, a postmodernist architect, was the Dean of GSAPP from 1972 to 1987.
Somehow, Polshek was accepted to and graduated from graduate school and became dean at GSAPP without having graduated from college. His undergraduate institution decided to correct the absurdity when they learned of Polshek's ascendancy to the deanship.
He also designed the newer addition to the law school's Jerome Greene Hall, Warren Hall, the building shared by the law and business schools, and Sulzberger Hall on the Barnard campus.
