A video tour of the new Science and Engineering Complex of Harvard

19 October, 2021

A new film produced by the LA-based studio Nephew takes viewers on a tour inside and around Behnisch Architekten's Science and Engineering Complex (SEC) at Harvard, which opened to students for the first time this fall, and which was recently recognized with the 2021 SEFA Lab of the Year award. Architects Matt Noblett and Stefan Behnisch, as well as Harvard faculty including the dean of the John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, discuss the building’s integrated design approach, which combines outlooks on sustainability, the human experience, and interdisciplinary learning. Take a peek inside the wide range of gathering and educational spaces throughout the airy, light-infused complex, which Stefan Behnisch calls a “science building for the future.” As Harvard’s first major building project in Allston, the new facility sets the tone — both aesthetically and programmatically — for a new type of holistic, 21st-century campus.
