We plan, design, and create cultural, academic, and civic buildings across the United States and abroad, bringing together the past and the present. Based in Boston, we design the architecture of its time to meet challenges of the future.
Harvard Divinity School
Built in 1911, Swartz Hall is the center of academic, administrative, and student life at the Harvard Divinity School, the first nonsectarian theological institution in the United States. In 2010, ABA/Annum completed a master plan that assessed existing conditions and program needs, established a preservation approach, and developed a phased plan for renovation and expansion. In the first project following the master plan, ABA/Annum renovated several classrooms in Swartz Hall, introducing new technology and flexible furnishings to accommodate traditional and emerging teaching methodologies.
