Lewis International Law Center, Harvard Law School Cambridge, MA

We are currently redesigning the Lewis International Law Center at the Harvard Law School to create a 21st century learning and work environment for students, faculty, and staff, as well as law clinic clients.

The project adds to and transforms a 1959 modernist building originally designed by Shepley Bullfinch Richardson & Abbott with a new entrance, increased teaching and office space, a new circulation system, and high-performance glazing. Several floors of library stacks are removed to create interlocking spaces that foster collaboration, learning, and co-working. At the same time, discreet areas are separated for focused work areas, private offices, and client consultation rooms. The project also houses a cutting-edge laboratory on law and cyber security.

Expected completion date – 2020
