32 Quincy Street Renovation And Expansion Project
The Harvard Art Museums project will renovate, restore, and expand its current facilities located at 32 Quincy Street and total approximately 204,000 GSF above and below ground, including: 104,000 GSF renovation, and 100,000 GSF new construction. The project will facilitate the centralization of the collections, galleries, and curatorial staff of the Fogg Museum, the Busch-Reisinger Museum, and the Arthur M. Sackler Museum in one state-of-the-art facility.
The project will upgrade the building’s infrastructure to meet professional museum
standards, and resolve spatial limitations and structural problems of later additions.
It will sensitively restore the existing building envelope, expand the Art Museums’
object-based study centers, increase exhibition space, and enhance visitor amenities.
Programmatically, the project will protect and preserve Harvard’s world-class collection and enhance the teaching and research mission of the Harvard Art Museums.
Pritzker Prize-winning architect Renzo Piano, with local design partner Payette Associates, has created a design that respectfully preserves the original building, while creating new space to support the program necessary to maintain the Art Museums’ mission, functionality, and public outreach.
During the renovation project, the Arthur M. Sackler Museum at 485 Broadway remains open and has been reinstalled with representative works from the collections of all three museums.
