Although it looks more like a foot path in the rendering, I think the street is still there and the view is taken from the triangular parking lot across W 2nd Street.

APPROVED!!

Massing has been chopped down 2 floors. Reconfigured slightly.

BRA: "It's a beautiful building. We're very proud to have AFH in our city."

The Artists for Humanity Expansion is moving forward with Cabot Corporation's donation of $400,000 worth of insulating aerogel. The donated aerogel will play a important role in making the Artists for Humanity Expansion Boston's first energy-positive building; upon completion, the building will generate more energy than it will use.

The donated aerogel will be used to construct the Artists for Humanity Expansion's insulated glass daylighting system. The aerogel will be used to glaze units of glass which will in turn be installed along the building's facade.

The aerogel-insulated glass will maximize the Artists for Humanity Expansion's thermal performance, contributing positively to the building's energy production. The glass will also help bring increased natural light to the building.

Re: Artists for Humanity | 100 W. 2nd | South Boston

bah, nowhere close to original design

http://www.bldup.com/projects/artist...nity-expansion

Quote:
A groundbreaking ceremony for Artists for Humanity’s 30,000-square-foot expansion of its’ South Boston headquarters was held last Thursday (July 13th). The expansion will allow Artists for Humanity, a national leader in youth arts enterprise whose mission is to bridge economic, racial, and social divisions by providing under-resourced urban youth with the keys to self-sufficiency through paid employment in art and design, to employ over 500 teens yearly, doubling the organization's current employment capability. Boston's first energy-positive building, Artists for Humanity’s expansion wing will be located adjacent to its’ existing 23,500-square-foot South Boston headquarters and will feature new studio, gallery and event space. The expansion will also contain the Liberty Mutual Career Center, a new initiative that will provide youth with skills necessary to succeed in building trades. The expansion will also allow Artists for Humanity to open a new community maker space and store.

Re: Artists for Humanity | 100 W. 2nd | South Boston

The renderings shown on the architect's website are very different from the one above, and more in keeping with the original design. This is the architect referenced in the BLDUP article (Behnisch Architekten), and the there's also a link there on the site dated today about the groundbreaking. Don't know if any of this means anything.

Re: Artists for Humanity | 100 W. 2nd | South Boston

EDIT: This is not in response to the true renderings, which are stunning.

How ironic.

Reminds me of John Malkovich's character in "Art School Confidential" when he tells his student it took him years for his art to get where it was, which was simply pictures of shapes.

Looks nice but I really preferred the honeycomb facade. I thought that was much more original looking.

Re: Artists for Humanity | 100 W. 2nd | South Boston

Flat roof aside, latest render is more interesting to me and seems to be a better fit with the existing building. The new developments in this area are kinda funky, in a good way -- shaping up to have a unique character for sure.

Also noticed that the groundbreaking ceremony already happened? That's odd, because this parcel is very much an active parking lot today.

Fence has gone up around the site and another area, across W Second is fenced off (I'm guessing for the site office).
