Gund Hall, home of the Harvard Graduate School of Design, showcases innovative architectural elements for its time such as a poured concrete construction and a stepped, trussed glass roof that covers a vast studio space organized on five terraces, also known as “the trays”. Notably, the building rises to meet its neighboring Memorial Hall and includes a covered arcade for pedestrians on the Quincy Street facade. Gund Hall brought together the different divisions of the Design School under one clear-span roof, promoting communication and collaboration between departments. With its unique architectural expression and functional design, Gund Hall exemplifies an innovative approach to spatial organization and integration of diverse disciplines, making it an iconic structure within design education.
