Recently the library team visited our joint venture partner Shepley Bulfinch’s office in Boston. When not hard at work on the Austin Public Library we were able to briefly take in some of Boston including the MIT chapel, Boston Public Library, and Fenway.

    Was the perforated brick wall at the chapel an interior screen?
    DL just can’t stop – you should have taken his sketchbook away.

      Yes the perforated wall was an interior chapel wall; I was hoping DL would catch a foul ball in the sketchbook but it didn’t happen.
