Boston, MA (PRWEB) August 22, 2013
Dudley Square is the geographic center of Boston. It is a transportation hub and the gateway to a major metropolis. It is a unique place with rich history. But the true essence of Dudley Square is found within the vibrant Roxbury community that surrounds it.
In the middle of all this is a new building, rising from the foundations of what once was a thriving commercial node. This is the story of how the promise of a building to enliven Dudley Square inspired those who shaped it—the city, the designers, and the community. The Dudley Square Municipal Office Facility, currently under construction, signals a new era. This building is the community’s catalyst.
Join us for Dudley Square | A Community’s Catalyst, an exhibition at Boston Architectural College curated by Sasaki Associates and Mecanoo Architecten. The show illuminates the design process of bringing the Dudley Square Municipal Office Facility in Boston to fruition.
