    Join us on Thursday, May 9, 2024, at 6PM in the McCormick Gallery for the closing reception as we celebrate the exhibit A Legacy of Design Innovation: Shepley Bulfinch at 150 and Beyond with refreshments, networking, and a panel discussion: Ever-changing Boston: Urban adaptation in the face of change.

    6:00 – 7:00 PM Refreshments and networking in McCormick Gallery
    7:00 – 8:00 PM Panel discussion in Cascieri Hall

    The working life of Americans has changed dramatically since 2020, and our new work/life habits continue to have unique impacts on the built environment. After decades of re-investment in cities, low demand for commercial office space has left many buildings fully or partially vacant. Downtowns and commercial districts are adjusting to our collectively altered patterns of behavior and movement.

    These changes can alight opportunity. How can buildings be repurposed, and with what? How can this be done with equity and sustainability at front of mind?

    To build on the question of how Boston will continue to evolve, we invite you to join us for a panel discussion with:

    • Bob Mohr, Principal, Shepley Bulfinch
    • Kermit Baker, Chief Economist, AIA
    • Arthur Jemison, Chief of Planning for the City of Boston and Director of the Boston Planning and Development Agency
    • Additional Speakers TBA

    Please RSVP to Matt Lundeen, Events Manager at [email protected] for this free reception and open discussion.
