The most comprehensive guide to Boston architecture ever published, AIA Guide to Boston Architecture documents the dramatic reorganization of the city by the Big Dig and other recent projects. Lucid descriptions of more than 600 sites are enlivened with history, culture, humor, and sharp opinion and are accompanied by professional b/w photography.


This book is a superbly written history of Boston’s built environment, filled with insider details and engaging anecdotes about more than 600 buildings, including such historic landmarks as Faneuil Hall, the mansions on Beacon Hill, the commercial wharves in Boston Harbor, Fenway Park, and the Freedom Trail as well as Boston’s latest contemporary buildings such as the ICA, MIT’s Stata Center, and the infamous “Big Dig.” This guide has been completely rewritten and redesigned, with added theme tours, such as Boston Urban Design, Contemporary Landmarks, or the work of Charles Bulfinch. New, up-to-date locator maps have been created for this edition, and the glossary and index have been revised.
