The Harvard Graduate School of Design (Harvard GSD) has selected Herzog & de Meuron and Beyer Blinder Belle as the design team for a “significant transformation” of the School’s iconic Gund Hall campus building. The proposed expansion will include the integration of a new space into the School’s existing structure, with the goal of creating a facility which “will embody the School’s visionary and cross-disciplinary work at the intersection of design, pedagogy, research, and practice." The project will seek to encourage new forms of cross-disciplinary collaboration, creating an intersection point between the GSD’s current studio workspaces known as “the trays” and new interior spaces for informal meetings, social gatherings, and public programs. The addition will have a minimal impact on the building footprint, hence preserving the GSD’s green space and basketball court.
