LERA led the structural design of a new building entry and adaptive reuse of existing spaces for the Massachusetts College of Art.
Prominently located on Boston’s “Avenue of the Arts,” the 40,000-sf (3,720-sm) facility creates a new central, iconic entry point to the campus, transforming a previously disused old brick gymnasium into modern studio, exhibition and teaching spaces. Built on existing foundations, the new entry features a triple-height atrium with an all-glass facade and an architecturally exposed steel structure, raising the level of transparency on campus.
