rare volumes

 

Spring 2014

Located in the heart of the emerald necklace at the Fenway in Boston, this project consolidates the MFA’s libraries into one complex. Shifts that occur in both plan and section integrate the building within the surrounding park landscape as its forms around the existing pedestrian trails. Subtle floor changes allow the private rare books sections and the common areas to retain a visual connection yet remaining physically separated.
