Design concept for Harvard's proposed Arts Center

Art Center Conceptual Design Proposals - (25MB file)

Harvard published this new information last week about the art building/museum/warehouse. Its a tough document to read becuase the document has a 30"x40" page size, but here are some initial observations.

The Public Education room that was in the basement has moved to the first floor. The space freed up in the basement is used to enlarge the "multi-purpose" room which now has space for 300 people for lectures or 200 people seated at tables. A catering kitchen and table/chair storage spaces are mentioned. It would be nice to have this space available to rent for Allston and Brighton functions, but that would only happen if the rental price would be affordable to our community groups. Rental of the courtyard at Harvard's Fogg museum starts at $5,900.
