Booth Arts Plaza, Boston University
Project Location: Boston, MA
Client: Boston University
To accomplish the goal of relocating the theater arts back on campus, Boston University commissioned the design of the new Booth Theater and arts plaza. This modern performance complex will offer both indoor and outdoor opportunities for the performing arts, and can also be used as a seasonal outdoor event space. The stepped landscape celebrates the grade change and the building’s transparent façade, providing much-needed gathering spaces along Commonwealth Avenue for students. Custom planters and wood seating encourage flexible programming and enliven the streetscape. A new bike path is integrated into the road realignment.
