Tradition embodied at Harvard
Law School building is a bit pompous
I can’t remember when I’ve heard so many people trash a new piece of architecture. During the two-plus years that it was under construction, people kept asking when the Globe was going to write about the overscaled monstrosity that the Harvard Law School was erecting. Now that it’s complete, it fits comfortably onto its site and its street. But the Robert A. M. Stern-designed building is a little pompous and a little dull. Maybe that’s the image the law school wants to project.
