At left, a crane-top view looks down into the subterranean construction for the Laboratory for Interface Science and Engineering. (A panoramic view at an earlier stage appeared in September-October 2005, pages 54-55.)

At bottom, extensive site work proceeds on the 460,000-square-foot Northwest Building, a multidisciplinary laboratory facility north of the Museum of Comparative Zoology.

Below, left, all but the façade of the Hasty Pudding Theatricals building has been razed. Within the tight confines of the Holyoke Street site, contractors are preparing to erect the New College Theatre.
