James Stirling: Sackler Museum, Harvard University 1982-85

When Renzo Piano's first ideas for the new Harvard Art Museum were unveiled last May, there was an intriguing statement in the Boston Globe that the Sackler "will be repurposed".

What do you do for adaptive re-use of a building which was such an icon of "magazine architecture"?

Could be an interesting challenge for your students, Eamonn.

As the current exhibition demonstrates the Sackler's spaces, especially the top floor, are still excellent exhibition spaces 25 years after completion. Perhaps the Faculty offices need to change, if the the New Fogg becomes a more commercial and less scholarly enterprise.
