As part of the Boston Landmark Commission's celebration of the month of May 2013 as "Preservation Month," the NABB Special Events Committee is pleased to offer the “Back Bay Shuffle,” a walking tour of the Back Bay presented by the Back Bay Architectural Commission on Wednesday, May 29th, from 5:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. The tour will be led by William Young, Senior Preservation Planner, Back Bay Architectural Commission, since 1991.
In Mr. Young’s words, “If the Back Bay remains a product of the nineteenth-century imagination, its architectural interest is by no means limited to its most historic structures. Scattered throughout the neighborhood are a surprising number of buildings erected since World War II. Some date from the largely unregulated period before the designation of the district; others, built since 1966, reflect the guiding influence of the Back Bay Architectural Commission. Whether residential or institutional, ecclesiastic or commercial, each exemplifies the changing needs and tastes of our recent past. On this tour we’ll consider the challenges of contextual design—and design review—in one of the country’s most aesthetically distinguished and creatively demanding environments.
The meeting place for the start of the tour will be confirmed by May 24, 2013. The tour is free and limited to the first 30 people who sign up at the bottom of this webpage.
Following the tour, a reception will be held at the College Club of Boston, located at 44 Commonwealth Avenue, beginning at 6:45 pm. If you are one of the first 30 people who sign up for the tour, you automatically will be signed up for the reception, which will be held in the beautiful ambiance of the College Club with a selection of delightful appetizers and a cash bar. We hope to see you there!
