Classrooms, laboratories, dining halls, dormitories, museums, offices, libraries, greenhouses, lecture halls, kitchens, and even a pub — the firm has completed a very rich repertoire of projects for educational institutions. At Harvard University, the firm has worked with the Medical School, the School of Public Health, the Law School, the Divinity School, the Business School, the Harvard University Museums, and both undergraduate and graduate programs of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences.
Museum projects have played a major role in the firm's educational work. The 185,000 SF Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History at the University of Oklahoma was completed in 2000, and is the largest of these projects. Work at the Harvard Art Museums, the Peabody Museum at Harvard, and the Robert Hull Fleming Museum at the University of Vermont are other university museums the firm has been involved with. Both the Sam Noble Museum and the Peabody Museum contain significant laboratory spaces and reflect the firm's experience with laboratories along with such projects as the William James Hall Animal Research Facility and the OEB Glasshouse, both undertaken for the Faculty of Arts and Sciences at Harvard.
The broad variety of project types for educational institutions and the large number of projects over many years for its largest client, Harvard University, attest to the firm's creative skills, and its ability to work closely with detail oriented clients to produce projects that please their users and meet the demanding schedules imposed by the academic year.
