CAMPUS RECONFIGURED: Harvard Kennedy School unveiled its renovated, reconfigured quarters to the public on December 1. In effect, a new ring of buildings has been inserted within the existing one, and below the prior courtyard. A view from the latter (first gallery image, above) shows the bridge structure created to partially enclose the pedestrian and vehicular entrance from Eliot Street. The aerial (second image) reveals the layout, the bridge, and the link building that closed the gap facing the Charles Hotel complex to the upper right (west). Also shown are a detail from within the courtyard, and a new social space connecting dining areas with the JFK Jr. Forum. Read more at harvardmag.com/hks-redo-17.
