AS+U 2014 Architectural Portfolio - November 15, 2014
American School + University magazine's 2014 Architectural Portfolio includes Wolf Architects' buildings at the Longy School of Music of Bard College, in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The Portfolio illustrates "Outstanding Designs" for educational institutions. Wolf Architects' projects were included in the "Specialized Facilities" category, given Longy's role as a well-known music conservatory, and the projects' attention to acoustical concerns. Work included introducing lively new practice rooms in the basement of the Rey Waldstein Building and modifications for enhanced acoustics in Pickman Hall, Longy's performance space. Both buildings represented design challenges in terms of Wolf Architects' need to improve and enhance historic structures for use by the conservatory, while simultaneously gaining approval from the Cambridge Historical Commission. The Cambridge Historical Commission recognized Longy's Rey Waldstein Building with a Preservation Award. Both buildings are contributing structures in the Old Cambridge Historic District.
