HARVARD UNIVERSITY SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING COMPLEX
Status: Ongoing
Location: Boston, MA, USA

The proposed Science and Engineering Complex (SEC), located on Harvard University’s emerging Allston campus, integrates one of the country’s most diverse and exciting engineering programs into a single 497,000-square-foot structure.

The new facility establishes a strong precedent for the development of outdoor space, street activation, and integration with larger public space networks, as described by the University’s Institutional Master Plan, which was approved in 2013. Set to be built on top of the existing foundation of a previously-designed life sciences complex that was suspended in 2008, it will accommodate teaching and research laboratories, classroom space, faculty and staff offices, and a host of amenity spaces.

1500 West Georgia
Location: Vancouver, Canada

Vancouver, consistently ranked as one of the most livable cities, has much to offer beyond a vibrant social environment, the “City of Glass” is known for its buildings of transparency and for its breathtaking surroundings of clear water and snow-covered mountains. But, like many cities today, its skyline is dominated by verticality – extrusions of generic towers that don’t engage their environment and create isolation rather than connection. The design opens up the inert shaft of the tower to embrace both city and nature in a three-dimensional sculpture which projects the space of living outwards into the surrounding context.
