Join Chris Scovel of Mass Design at the newly dedicated Embrace MLK Memorial to explore its significance in term of scale, placement, and place.  This impressive sculpture speaks to an important time in Boston’s history and in the history of the civil rights movement. 


Chris joined MASS in 2011 and has worked on multiple projects in East and West Africa, India, Haiti and the US. He has lead design teams for new large hospital complexes, new hospital buildings, and renovations.  Additionally, he deeply values his role as an occasional mentor to a broad range of projects and individuals at MASS. He values the intensely collaborative aspect of MASS’s work both within the office and with our partners and clients. For instance, he recently worked closely with and the Gates Foundation on a project to design public toilets for the developing world. Prior to MASS, Chris worked as an architect in Boston providing design, project management, and construction administration expertise on multiple institutional projects, which included libraries, courthouses, and a wide variety of academic buildings. Chris is a registered and LEED certified architect. He received his Masters in Architecture from Harvard’s Graduate School of Design.

Meet at the Memorial on the Common near the Information Kiosk on the Tremont Street side.
