Harvard Medical School
Jeffrey Modell Center for Immunology
Envisioned as a new space for graduate education in Immunology, the Jeffrey Modell Center for Immunology at Harvard Medical School is a unique endeavor to maximize collaboration and drive innovation between students, faculty, and post doctoral fellows in the graduate program in Immunology, as well as throughout the Harvard-affiliated Institutions. It provides much needed space for teaching, lecture programs, receptions, seminars, educational events, conference rooms, study areas, lounges, a library and new office space for the Immunology Program.
The Center is a new two-story, glass curtainwall addition set within a formerly isolated courtyard between the School’s historic Armenise and Alpert Halls. A sky-lit atrium is the focus of the building. The slanted roof was designed to both maintain the integrity of the surrounding historic facades and bring daylight into the new and existing interiors. The atrium is also designed as a flexible space that supports both formal and informal gatherings.
