  3. 3. • The Harvard Graduate Centre, also known as "the Gropius Complex" was commissioned of The Architects Collaborative by Harvard University in 1948. • The first modern building on the campus, it was also the first endorsement of the modern style by a major university and was seen in the national and architectural presses as a turning point in the acceptance of the aesthetic in the U.S. • The Architects Collaborative (TAC), a modernist firm headed by Walter Gropius and seven younger architects, was a bold choice for the typically traditional university. • The building was completed in 1950, and was one of the first major projects in the Architects Collaborative office. • In justifying the placement of these innovations at Harvard, Gropius reveals his passion, and activism, for the acceptance of modernism on college campuses.
