BERKLEE COLLEGE COMMISSIONS WSDG FOR MAJOR PROJECTS

Concurrent Work On Two Continents: Boston, Mass. & Valencia, Spain

In a patent message of confidence in education and the inherent strengths of the world economy, the Berklee College of Music has embarked on a significant expansion program.  In Valencia, Spain, an entirely new campus opened in January, 2012. In Boston, the first ground-up building in Berklee’s 66-year history, 160 Massachusetts Avenue, a 16-story, $100 million structure, began construction in December 2011. While U.S. and Spanish architects were engaged to create strikingly disparate footprints for each of these bold projects, a single internationally recognized studio design and acoustical consultancy, the Walters-Storyk Design Group, was commissioned to create the audio education studios for both these learning complexes.

Urban Living XXL in Boston, Massachusetts in Ruhl Walker Architects

Wednesday, August 31st, 2011

Article source: Ruhl Walker Architects

This Boston loft – nearly 5,000 SF with 18-foot high ceilings – presented a number of amazing opportunities and more than a few challenges.  Chief among the opportunities was amplifying the immensity of the central living space – one of the largest in the city – while making an understandable and livable family house.  Two monolithic organizing walls and a floating ceiling plane anchor the space and orient the occupant without disturbing its vastness or disrupting sightlines.

Article source: Map-Lab, inc.

The International Living Future Institute launched the Living City Design Competition in 2010, seeking designs for our cities in the year 2035. map-lab’s submission was ResilienCity. ResilienCity seeks to set the vision for the future of Boston’s Innovation District, a new neighborhood built on greyfield and brownfield sites that will provide residences and workplaces for over 300,000 people. We have reached the tipping point where we need to think of the whole, not the self. We have arrived at a time when we need to stop behaving selfishly and begin to explore how we can all come together as a community to create environments that are culturally enriching, healthier, and equitable. We come back to nature to do this.

The Modern Theatre in Boston, MA by CBT Architect

Tuesday, April 12th, 2011

Located in a dense historic district in downtown Boston, Suffolk University embraced the once magnificent, but now abandoned, Modern Theatre as a way to meet the needs of its expanding theater program. Working with the City of Boston, the University agreed to restore the original masonry façade and replace the deteriorated theater with a new one, thus also completing the City’s final phase of a comprehensive multi-theater restoration endeavor. The reconstruction of the Modern Theatre revives a city landmark and the project is reinvigorating the neighborhood by bringing new uses to the site, while honoring and maintaining the building’s period look.
