Perkins+Will Boston: Fenway Cultural District Initiative

Perkins + Will Boston is committed to engaging its professional resources and leadership to benefit the social needs in the built environment where design can make a difference. Perkins + Will Boston donates 1% of its billable time and advanced design thinking to initiate and execute projects that benefit, enhance and enliven the greater Boston community.

The goal for 2012 is to enhance shared civic and communal places. Perkins+Will believes, in order to be vital, cities must have beautiful surprises that provoke human interaction, developing temporary spaces and unique backdrops that support programs that enhance a sense of place and engagement.

The Fenway Cultural District Initiative, in partnership with the Fenway Alliance, will develop a temporary design installation in Evans Way Park. Fenway has just been designated as Boston's first state-recognized cultural district. Perkins+Will will design and fabricate an installation to commemorate this historic event. The installation will be installed in early September and will serve as a backdrop to OPENING OUR DOORS 2012 in the Fenway Cultural District on Monday, October 8, 2012.

Perkins + Will offers architectural expertise in Healthcare, Education, Sports and Recreation as well as performance and community projects and we are looking for opportunities to give back to Boston and the surrounding communities.
