Gallery: THE EPICENTER in Boston


In spite of the many long-term payoffs, the initial financial investment in building green can be a prohibitive factor in many cases. Sure, Ford Motors can hire green-building superhero, William McDonough, to transform its factories, but how many local non-for-profits do you know occupying a LEED certified building? Breaking that trend, Artists for Humanity, a Boston-based youth arts organization located in the burgeoning Fort Point Channel Arts District, has proved that it’s possible for the little guys to build green, too.

    Hey There…Has anyone who posted a message here actually seen this building? It is absolutely GEORGEOUS!!! If modernism is not your thing, then you may not like it, but if you like a blank canvas, the EpiCenter is a godsend. By the way, the art pieces hanging on the walls were completed by local high school kids…and most of these pieces are better than anything I’ve seen in Boston, Chicago, New York or LA! I praise the dedicated teachers and employees of the EpiCenter and look forward to you paying the highest possible price for works completed buy these talented artists…

    The windshields are pretty silly looking. It’s good they recycled the construction waste. All of Boston is getting so overdone, hopefully some of the new construction will recycle their trash too. There’ll be a few more like this before it’s all done I’ll bet.

    It’s not so bad. I don’t know about those windshields. Are there windshields piling up in the landfills? It’s a nice try anyway.
