Boston City Hall: Drawings by Kallmann McKinnell and Knowles
October 7, 2013
November 17, 2013
Extended through November 17!
Selected from the collections of Historic New England and curated by Gary Wolf AIA, this exhibition offers a rare opportunity to explore the genesis of Boston City Hall from initial concept through design development, and the challenges that architects Kallmann, McKinnell & Knowles faced with their winning solution. Dating from 1962, the more than 40 original architectural plans and drawings contained in the exhibition celebrate one of the best-known examples of the New Brutalism in American architecture. The special significance and inventiveness of the building also is highlighted in a series of sketches, design studies, photographs, and a model.
