An opinion piece about Harvard's plans for Allston
We are not worried that the University will repeat the same mistakes, but after the presentation of sketches for Allston's first new building-a science complex-students cannot help but wonder if the University will make all new mistakes, albeit of the same genus.
The airy glass structures of Behnisch are beautiful to be sure, but they do not highlight Harvard’s heritage or evoke its glory. Instead they evoke the new science complexes of Anycollege, U.S.A., something which Harvard is not.
