The Rescue of Guy Lowell’s Ensemble ::
The Landscape and Structures of the Charles River Dam, 1910
Tuesday, March 6, 2012 from 6:30 - 8 pm
West End Museum, 150 Staniford St, Suite 7, Boston, MA 02114
Karl Haglund, Project Manager for the New Charles River Basin at the Metropolitan District Commission and author of Inventing the Charles River, will speak about the campaign for the Charles River Dam and how its design evolved into a park of five functionally important and carefully designed structures (the Upper and Lower Lock Gate Houses, the Pavilion, the Boat House and the Stable).
As a researcher and author, Haglund has explored the balance between transportation planning and stewardship of the public realm.
