Seaport Series: Historic Front Street

 

COOKFOX--Historic-Front-Streetcrop

New Date: April 29, 2014
5pm

Rick Cook, principal of COOKFOX Architects, leads a tour of Historic Front Street, a dynamic mixed-use complex of shops and apartments that thoughtfully fuses contemporary design with a block of formerly neglected historic brick warehouses from the Seaport’s heyday. Learn about how the neighborhood’s rich history is informing the architecture of its revitalization today, and how Historic Front Street’s post-Sandy retrofit could provide a model for post-disaster recovery in historic areas in the future.
