Studio Gang Selected to Design Harvard University's New Enterprise Research Campus



"The Harvard Allston Land Company (HALC) has designated Tishman Speyer to be the preferred developer for the initial phase of the University’s Enterprise Research Campus (ERC) in Allston. . . .

'Tishman Speyer will bring to Allston a wealth of experience shaped by extraordinary work around the world, and we look forward to the further development of the Enterprise Research Campus,' said Harvard President Larry Bacow. 'The convergence of art, business, and engineering in a new urban district will create opportunities for creativity and innovation that will drive achievements in research that none of us can imagine.'

The architect selected to lead the project is Jeanne Gang, M.Arch. ’93, founding principal of Studio Gang, an international architecture and urban design practice based in Chicago, New York, and San Francisco. A MacArthur Fellow who was named one of Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People in 2019, Gang has received numerous accolades over the years and was the Architectural Review Woman Architect of the Year in 2017. Tishman Speyer’s previous collaborations with her include residential projects in San Francisco and Brooklyn, as well as the mixed-use Mission Rock neighborhood project in San Francisco. Gang has also done work on the University of Chicago’s campus and on O’Hare International Airport."
