Fourth impression of a Japanese garden

Tuesday, 24 December 2013

In the spirit of reflection that comes at this time of year, we share this contemplation from Barak Yaryan, Shepley Bulfinch’s 2013 Howe Traveling Fellow, who spent four weeks this past summer journeying through Japan.

I walk into a Samurai house in Kanazawa. It is a low, timber framed house with a dominant roof behind brown mud walls topped with black ceramic tiles, smaller versions of the same tiles that protectively float over the paper walls of the house. Inside the foyer and a left a turn down the hallway is a small garden the size of a ceramic claw bathtub. It is a garden intended to be observed through an ...[more]

Discovery and delight: Tad Jusczyk’s long road to Venice

Tuesday, 1 November 2011

Tad Jusczyk gave everyone at Shepley a remarkable new perspective as he journeyed from Xi’an to Venice this past summer as Shepley Bulfinch’s inaugural Howe Traveling Fellow. As Tad traveled we shared his discoveries and observations on his blog, The Long Road to Venice. Since his return, they have enriched our design dialogue.

His journeys were also documented in Tour de Force, a Boston Society of Architects’ online feature and slideshow.

The Howe Traveling Fellowship is a grant for travel and exploration for Shepley Bulfinch staff, supported by the firm to honor ...[more]

In 1997, Shepley Bulfinch established a ten-week Summer Design Fellowship, which is open to all students who are, at date of submission, enrolled in an accredited professional degree program in the field of architecture.

Design notes: the 2011 Fellowship Poster

Friday, 28 January 2011

How do you match the resounding success of our 2010 Fellowship Poster, designed by Experimental Jetset? By inviting Michael Bierut of Pentagram to design the 2011 poster.

I’d like to share some insights about the design process, strategy, and design thinking behind the poster itself. Our design brief to Michael was essentially to match the quality of the candidates we’re seeking as this year’s Fellow: someone who combines a high-level and perhaps rare combination of extraordinary design talent, creativity, passion, intuition, appetite and ...[more]
