The project involves exterior modifications to Pound Hall as part of a major re-landscaping effort to create a “crossroads” for the Harvard Law School campus. The building contains classrooms and seminar rooms as well as various academic and administrative offices.
This project re-envisions what is currently passive, residual space into a vibrant, active landscape that functions both as a major campus pedestrian route as well as a centering gathering space. The Crossroads is bordered by Pound Hall to the west, Langdell Hall to the southeast, Harkness Commons to the northeast and Wasserstein Hall, Caspersen Student Center, Clinical Wing, recently completed to the north. The project also addresses landscaping improvements to the parking area south of Pound Hall. Collectively, this project, conceived as part of the larger Harvard Law School campus master plan, aims to create a new “heart” of the Harvard Law School campus.
In order to accommodate the programming goals of the Crossroads and to better facilitate its connections to the surrounding buildings, the project proposes the partial demolition of approximately one-third of Pound Hall’s east wing. A new façade designed to complement the distinct modernist architecture of the building, will re-clad Pound Hall’s remaining east wing and will incorporate a new entry to the building.
