Docomomo recognizes BU Law renovation

Docomomo US has recognized the Boston University School of Law Renovation and Addition project with a Citation of Merit in their Modernism in America Awards program. The Awards celebrate the best of modern architecture preservation practices, which balance financial viability, adaptation, and meaningful treatment of historic buildings.

The jury noted that the BU Law project “is a powerful example where the architects acted as preservation advocates, successfully changing the University’s and public’s perception of a building, while bringing significant details back to life in a way that reinvigorates the entire School of Law complex.”
