Boston’s SEGD chapter met for a walking tour through members' studios and work along the Rose Kennedy Greenway. The tour began at ArrowStreets office at 10 PO Square.  Lauren Haggerty of ArrowStreet highlighted a few Experiential Design projects including The Boston Public Library and a custom seaglass Codfish mural at 225 State Street and the use of VR to explore and present experiential spaces to clients.

The group then headed down Milk and Oliver Streets over to 200 High Street to visit the space at SGA.  There, Matt Maggiacomo from SGA gave a tour of their offices which included a look at their Learn Up Space for discussion and education of new trends and concepts from vendors, the collaborative work spaces which are set up by teams and their extensive library space of samples, mock ups and materials. Matt then presented project overview of Duck Creek and Living Proof. Matt discussed the visioning summary which is used to establish a baseline concept and touch point for the project and how it expanded into and through the design process. Matt also talked about how the partnership with DCL as the fabricator on Duck Creek was key in helping to achieve the desired result and bringing the concept to life.

Next the group headed across Purchase Street onto the Ross Kennedy Greenway. There Andrew Barresi of Roll Barresi Associates discussed the Wayfinding program his firm designed for this greenspace. Key elements discussed were the variety of design that each park had and how the wayfinding needed to work within each space. Bringing a positive impact to the space and also disappearing within the Greenway were other key design elements that went into the finished program.  The signs were needed to be permanent, but have some ability to be updated and relocated if needed which was achieved with DCL as the fabricator partner in the engineering of the final design.

Russell Brown of DCL then picked up where Andrew Left off and expanded on the Greenway Wayfinding program from the fabricators perspective. Russ went over the process of bringing the design to life and breaking down the elements of construction “base up and inside out”. Other factors in the finished product included things such as the environment and functional use of the sign.

An evening with multi disciplinarian and global visionary-Jan Lorenc
Set in the inspiring Boston Society of Architects building, Jan Lorenc (founder of Lorenc+Yoo Design) led a group of 30 creatives, through an environmental graphic design journey traversing a multitude of styles, design disciplines, global clients, cultures and resources. As a master story teller, Jan was able to thoughtfully and succinctly navigate his 40 year repertoire in an engaging hour-long showcase. Followed by a brief question and answer session, the audience got a wonderful glimpse into his ability to cohesively synthesize a design narrative that is true to the biography of the project and the business of this industry.

The energy of the space, the enthused minds, and not to mention the delectable hor d’oeuvres, made for a lovely, intimate and insightful evening, hosted by SEGD Boston.

Please join SEGD Boston in the Harbor Room at the Boston Society of Architects, for an evening with Jan Lorenc, founder of Lorenc + Yoo Design. Jan Lorenc will present his insight after more than 40 years in the field.

Jan Lorenc established Lorenc+Yoo Design in 1978 in Chicago. Previously, he designed the logo and signage guidelines for Target  Stores, which are used to this day. The company initially undertook industrial design projects, and later began work on large scale signage programs. In the mid-1990s, the firm moved into exhibits, interiors, and architecture. The  firm has worked in Korea, UAE, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, India, and Japan. Currently, half of their work is in China where it creates the vision and design for brand new towns.

Jan Lorenc was made a fellow of SEGD in 2017.

The BSA is hosting a fundraiser Architecture Trivia Night following this event from 7:00-9:00 pm. There will be pizza and beer/wine for $25. All proceeds will support the BSA Foundation and its mission to build a better Boston.
