Harvard - Kennedy School of Government | Cambridge
 
From the Harvard Crimson(10/6/14):

Quote:

The Kennedy School of Government has submitted preliminary plans to the City of Cambridge for a dramatic remodeling of its physical campus, including the addition of 77,000 square feet of new building space, that school leaders hope will complement ongoing changes to pedagogy and interdisciplinary research.

The plans are set to go before the city’s planning board during a hearing on Tuesday. If approved, construction on the more than $100 million dollar project would likely begin following Commencement and aims to be completed by Jan. 2018, according to the Kennedy School’s executive dean, John Haigh.

Including three new buildings and the elevation of the school’s current courtyard, the project looks to be one of the largest capital expansions on Harvard’s Cambridge campus in recent history and will increase the school’s current square footage by more than 30 percent.

The school is currently is comprised of two main structures: the Belfer, Littauer, and Rubenstein buildings, which are all adjoined, and date from the 1970s and 1980s; and the separate Taubman building, which was completed in 1990. Under the current plans, the two structures would be adjoined, as a new “Gateway” building would connect Taubman to Belfer, a “West” building on the site of the school’s current parking lot would connect Rubenstein to Taubman, and a “South” building would connect Littauer to the new “West” building.

" the current courtyard will be elevated by one story to the level of Eliot St., which will enable functions like service delivery and safe dignitary arrival to occur under the courtyard."

"Robert A.M. Stern Architects—who designed Harvard Business School’s Spangler Center—and Michael Van Valkenburgh are working as the architect and landscape architect for the construction project."

Too much brick everywhere, plus ugly design.

As a new high school in Dallas, this would be great.

Charlie -- its a HHHHHaaaaaaahhhhhhvd building in Cambridge what did you expect Le Corbusier? ;)


What I'm wondering is where are they going to park all the trailers providing the emergency housing for all the people who expected to be having a Clinton Administration job in DC?

It's a building for the school for school uses, I'm pretty sure it's not meant to adorn the cover of magazines.
