Gordon Fellow Presents to Boston Society of Architects
On September 14th, Nick Brooks (Gordon Fellow 2011) of Sasaki Associates will present to the Boston Society of Architects about his experience as Project Manager for the $115M Dudley Municipal Facility.
The project includes 200,000 square feet of mixed-use offices and retail locations designed to centralize Boston Public School administration in the heart of their geographic constituency.
- Learn how a mixed-use building complex is conceived as a catalyst for improvement of an important transportation center and a potent symbol for revitalization of an entire neighborhood.
- Understand the technical and ideological challenges associated with creating a modern and innovative building that respects and incorporates historic building fabric.
- Consider the Dudley Municipal Facilities design review process as a case study in creating historically sensitive new architecture while adhering to Boston Landmarks Commission standards and criteria and BRA urban design objectives.
- Understand how the demolition delay process (Article 85) can promote and encourage community input regarding potentially historic fabric.
