*FULL* CoA: "Reinvention of the Harvard Art Museums"

“Reinvention of the Harvard Art Museums”
With Mark Carroll, Renzo Piano Building Workshop; and Charles Klee AIA, Payette

Originally constructed in 1927, Harvard’s Fogg Art Museum was designed to break the mold for fine-arts teaching museums. Through successive additions, the collection became increasingly disconnected and difficult to access. The designers were presented with the arduous task of consolidating three museums—the Busch-Reisinger, the Arthur M. Sackler, and the Fogg—into one facility. The challenge is to reconfirm the strong academic mission, make the collection more accessible, and solve the museums’ technical challenges while respecting the landmarked original building.
