The Exchange at 100 Federal

Description: Retail
Client: Boston Properties
Architect: Perkins + Will
Location: Boston, MA

Designed as the shining new heart of Boston’s Financial District, The Exchange at 100 Federal Street is a structural steel and glass pavilion that will function as a public gathering and event space, delivering a contemporary addition, responding to the form of the existing 37-story, 1971 office building. The angular volume is a solid steel space frame with exposed bolted connections, where honest structure is celebrated, and shape and detailing were carefully considered for efficiency. This project highlights the benefits of collaborative design loops, integrating owner, design, and construction teams to activate a pedestrian commuter thoroughfare with a landmark structure.
