We are excited to share that the Cambridge Historic Commission has recognized the Richard J. Resch Boathouse at MIT with a 2023 Preservation Award!
Bruner/Cott partnered with boathouse experts Peterson Architects to revive the Richard J. Resch Boathouse at MIT. Situated along Memorial Drive, the building was originally constructed in 1965 and dedicated in 1966 as the Harold W. Pierce Boathouse. At the time, it was considered one of the most modern collegiate crew training and recreational rowing facilities for men, anywhere. Its most distinguishing feature was the inclusion of an indoor rowing tank that allowed MIT athletes to train year-round, despite the conditions of harsh New England winters.
