It’s essential to get input from both sides, regardless of where the new space request originated. Harvard Law School developed an IT Steering Committee to avoid potential pitfalls such as the unfortunate lack of space on the projection lectern for the instructor’s laptop. The Allston committee developed a model for collecting information from faculty about new space design. Stephen Baker indicated that when the architect is brought in for the first time, the questions he will ask are: What is the experience you are trying to evoke? What do the faculty want to achieve? Elizabeth Sisam added that the discussion has to happen on both levels -- student and faculty -- when discussing engagement.
