Kline Biology Tower is a skyscraper in New Haven, Connecticut. The building is home to the Yale University Department of Biology and is currently the tallest building on the Yale campus and the fourth-tallest building in New Haven.[3][4] It was the tallest building in the city from 1966 to 1969, and was designed by Philip Johnson,[3] who also designed the nearby—and architecturally related—Kline Geology and Chemistry Laboratories.[5]
