Shepley Bulfinch celebrates 150 years of practice with a new exhibition at the Boston Architectural College

At the Boston Architectural College (BAC) this spring, an exhibition indebted to Shepley Bulfinch opened to the public in the BAC’s McCormick Gallery. The show, entitled A Legacy of Design Innovation: Shepley Bulfinch at 150 and Beyond, celebrates a major milestone for the architecture office founded by Henry Hobson Richardson in 1874. This year, Shepley Bulfinch turned 150 years old, making it the sixth oldest architecture firm in the U.S.

Angela Watson, president and CEO of Shepley Bulfinch, curated the exhibition together with Dr. Mahesh Daas, the BAC’s president. According to Watson, the show’s location at the BAC was fitting: Shepley Bulfinch was founded in 1874, and Boston Architectural College in 1889. Watson told AN that both institutions have deep ties with one another. Numerous Shepley Bulfinch staffers over the past century were educated at the BAC, and both institutions have played pivotal roles in Boston’s genesis as a metropolis with architecture that spans centuries and styles.
