The Graduate Student Housing for Harvard University at 10 Akron Street on Memorial Drive is prominently sited on the Charles River in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The new housing acts as a gateway to both the southern edge of Harvard’s Cambridge campus and to Harvard’s new developing initiatives in Allston across the Western Avenue Bridge. The building’s various scales and courtyard space mediate between the river and the City of Cambridge. The 177,000 sf building houses 215 beds, a Faculty Director’s Suite, several common & study lounges, a Multi-Purpose room, and an underground parking facility.
