Temporary modular building at Harvard targets sustainability

March 11, 2011 |

Anderson Anderson Architecture of San Francisco designed the Harvard Yard childcare facility, a modular building manufactured by Triumph Modular of Littleton, Mass., that was installed at Harvard University. The 5,700-sf facility will remain on the university’s Cambridge, Mass., campus for 18 months while the Harvard Yard Child Care Center and the Oxford Street Daycare Coop are being renovated. Sustainable features factored heavily into the building’s design and construction, including solar tube skylights, recycled interior materials and carpet tiles, lighting controls, green insulation, white roof, exterior sunshades, and operable windows.
