Checking in on this:

Constructed under budget and ahead of schedule:

Great decision, congrats Harvard!

Ironically, in Europe -the continent of classical architecture- it'd probably have been the other way around.
Contemporary professors and students would likely protest against a classical campus building in favor of something faceless, exchangeable or "eyecatching, contrasting" in a modernist style.

In fact, sadly, it's unlikely that a classical building would've been proposed at all in Europe.

Well, classically designed buildings once in a while enter a public competition, but usually they don't win. It's still often considered backward-minded to build classical, which of course is BS.

In Amsterdam, where we -luckily- tend to not put up faux historical buildings, the Heritage and Aesthetics Commission is constantly afraid that whatever is built near the historic canals might be confused for historicism, which is a big no-no here unless you're keeping to an original design from that time. They even went as fas as preventing a big modern building that was built quite abit away (but still visible) to use some sort white tiling instead of regular bricks. Mind you, most buildings here are actually made out of brick, even strikingly modern designs. They prefer everything in or near the historic city center to provide "contrast". Outside of those areas building in brick and using elaborate detailing is fine though. Pretty strange when you think about it. Not like we don't have 1930s designs in brick mixed in there as well.

I think that is a completely ridiculous design constraint, as if historic buildings have a monopoly on the use of brick . If somebody confuses a completely contemporary brick building for a historic building then they're just ignorant, no need to limit modern buildings from using brick because of that, even in historic canal area you were talking about
And thats funny actually because the heritage body here very often only allows modern buildings to be built int he historic areas only IF they're made of brick !

But I think both policies are flawed. Good design is good design, and good design can be made of any material. And good design will complement a historical area even if the material is different, or the same.
