Change and Response: Boston’s Architecture, 1837 – 2021
This tour - new for 2021 - 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.
Meet your guide at the Custom House steps (corner of India and State Streets opposite 1 India Street).
BHV Members & Guests: $20.00 for private BBF-guided tour. Price is the same for BBF members.
