Boston Medical Centre – Shapiro Building

The Shapiro Building built entirely out of environmental sensitive materials and technologies, is a responsible addition to the Boston Medical Center Campus. A terracotta cladding system used on the building’s exterior skin, lends a contemporary interpretation to the brick masonry context of the campus, while offering a solar shading element to the high performance curtainwall facade.
