Austin Corridor is a classroom building of the Harvard Regulation University developed by famous American architect H. H. Richardson. The initial building purposely built for an American law school, it was also the initial committed house of Harvard Regulation. It is found on the Harvard College campus in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
The corridor was built 1882–1884 in Romanesque Revival type. Single-tale wings flank a significant, two-tale central mass, with the examining area extending rearwards to sort an total T form. A central entryway framed with Romanesque triple arch is established deep in the building’s flat front facade, with an uneven stairway tower protruding forwards to its proper. The building is faced with Longmeadow sandstone in placing polychrome designs, the light stones forming checkerboards in dim, reddish partitions. The arches are of pale Ohio sandstone, as is the thick cornice band incised with a lengthy and sententious motto.
