Harvard Law School’s Wasserstein Caspersen Clinical center is pedestrian-friendly along Massachusetts Avenue, with varied landscaping and views into classrooms. To the rear, a second-floor landscaped courtyard and green roof create an elevated quad: an oasis for conversation or lunch, for students to indulge in sun-and-study biathlons, and for small functions. The green spaces also helped the building secure a LEED Gold certification for energy and environmental design.

Schnapp chose the name because the word “curricle”—like the English word “curriculum”—derives from the Latin “curriculum,” meaning “race,” “running,” or “chariot.” “Curricle” as a platform name thus invokes the metaphor of the curriculum as an academic vehicle and journey.
