Architect Kyu Sung Woo has designed a new graduate housing complex for Harvard University in Cambridge, MA. The 115,000 SF project is a part of University’s ongoing effort to house 50 percent of its graduate, professional and doctoral students, further supporting a strong residential campus community and helping to alleviate pressure on the local housing market.

The scheme houses 215 beds in over 30 different suite types, and includes a faculty director’s suite, a fitness room, study lounge spaces, a multipurpose room, and a garage that extends under the building, its courtyard, and a new public open space along Memorial Drive.

V&A Jewellery Gallery : Eva Jiricna Architects
The concept of the new Gallery comprises of a two level arrangement. The upper level is situated in the middle of the space and it is connected to the lower level via a circular glass staircase. The internal envelope is designed as a continuous ‘tube’ inserted freely into the fabric of the existing building envelope.
