Change And Response: A Walking Tour
CHANGE AND RESPONSE: Boston’s Architecture, 1837 – 2021
Saturday, September 11, 2021 - 10:00 AM
Wednesday, September 15, 2021 - 5:30 PM
This new tour tracks Boston’s development in chronological order on a walk that’s just a half-mile long. Along the way, we’ll be paying special attention to what Robert Campbell, the Boston Globe’s long time architectural critic, calls the encoded information that is present when we look closely at buildings. Things like:
• The moment they were built: Boston responding to local and national events
• The men (as it turns out) who built them and their profession
• The (mostly) European design precedents that inspired their work
• The new building systems, materials, and regulatory trends that informed them.
Private Tours: This tour can be scheduled as a private tour at any time with advance notice. Private tour rates do apply. Call 617.367.2345 or visit our website at www.bostonbyfooot.org to learn more.
