Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the Senate Boston, MA

This invited competition requested design proposals for an Edward M. Kennedy “Senatorial Library” adjacent to the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum on UMass’s Boston campus.

We combined a variety of facilities under one roof: a study center; archive and library; spaces for public forums, classes, and educational programs; offices and facilities for archival activities; an interactive digital presentation lab; and, most uniquely and importantly, a replica of the U.S. Senate Chamber, envisioned by the senator to be a educational tool in teaching all ages about the workings of democracy.
