The Harvard Art Museums building, which opens November 16th, consolidates three museums in a single volume capped by an art study center and state-of-the-art conservation laboratory. Architect Renzo Piano will speak about the project, followed by a conversation moderated by historian and critic Kenneth Frampton, Ware Professor of Architecture at Columbia University. Thomas W. Lentz , Elizabeth and John Moors Cabot Director, will join the discussion.
Renzo Piano, a laureate of the Pritzker Prize and many other distinctions, founded Renzo Piano Building Workshop in 1981 following a partnership with architect Richard Rogers and engineer Peter Rice; early experimental practice; and work in the offices of Franco Albini, Louis Kahn, and others. RPBW (Genoa, Paris, and New York) is internationally recognized and lauded for its public spaces, excellence in engineering, and sensitivity to existing structures, as well as for architectural design.
