*FULL* Harvard Art Museum Renovation Tour

Fogg Museum Renovation Tour

Collaborating with the Renzo Piano Building Workshop, Harvard University created a single state-of-the-art facility to bring together their three Art Museums – Fogg, Busch-Reisinger and Sackler – and their collections under one roof while preserving their distinct identities. The project breaks away from the typology of Museums being static treasure houses and makes the collection more accessible as tools for teaching and learning. The project combines galleries, classrooms, theater, art study centers, the Straus Conservation Center and other support spaces to serve the needs of students from multiple academic strata.

Justin Lee will lead tours through the galleries and the public spaces inside the newly opened facility.  He has worked for various architectural offices in New York and Boston before joining the Renzo Piano Building Workshop in Genova, Italy, in 2005. He has worked on various projects in the workshop including the new California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco and the Harvard Art Museums Expansion and Renovation in Boston, where he has worked closely with Renzo and the clients since the beginning of the design process throughout the construction period and was the architect on site representing the Building Workshop.  Born in Hong Kong, Justin earned his Bachelor of Arts with honors from Wesleyan University in 1999, and his Master of Architecture from the Harvard Graduate School of Design in 2004.

For those who qualify, 1.5 LUs are available
