Facades + Conference
Amy Korté on “Lightness & Weight | Creating Continuity in Cityscape with Hybrid Facades“
Balancing Boston’s historic and Brutalist landmarks, Congress Square and Smith Center projects introduce juxtapositions of materials and styles. The case studies will tackle challenges of redefining, adding and constructing additions in busy urban centers. You will be joined on this panel by Henry Moss of Bruner/Cott who will be talking about their extension of the Smith Campus Center. So, two very different projects, but with similar "hybridization" of the old and new.
