Harvard Business School, Boston, MA
Creating a new hub for executive education at Harvard Business School
This new building, named in honor of a generous gift from the Dr. James Si-Cheng Chao and Family Foundation, will replace Kresge Hall and become the new “front door” to the Executive Education precinct. Our design signals this commitment to executive education, welcomes and orients participants, and provides space for learning, socializing, dining and networking.
The heart of the building is a multi-story Hub, highlighted by a terraced gathering stair that attract groups and individuals to linger and interact.
Programs elements include three primary dining areas seating a total of 520 participants; two flexible Hive-type classrooms; multiple group rooms for team work; staff offices; several lounges and break areas; a multi-purpose room and a roof terrace.
