Fogg Museum Expansion - Harvard University

As the task at hand was to demolish and then rebuild 70 percent of the 204,000-square-foot interior of the original 1927 building, plus add a 154,000-square-foot, five-story addition, every step required walking-on-eggshells precision. Seven hundred tons of temporary steel had to be put in place to brace the existing walls; two huge frescoes, one a 10-foot-by-12-foot work weighing 15 tons, had to be extracted from a load-bearing masonry wall.
