Lunder Arts Center at Lesley University

1801 Massachusetts Avenue
Cambridge, MA 02140
United States
Last certified on: Dec 27, 2016
Certification level: Gold

The Lunder Arts Center opened in 2015 at 1801 Massachusetts Avenue in Porter Square. It is a testament to Lesley University’s commitment to sustainability. The centerpiece of the project involves the relocation and renovation of the historic North Prospect Church circa 1845 — quite literally the recycling of an entire building — with the stained glass windows being restored and used in the arts center, while other church materials (pews, pipe organ, pulpit) found homes in places as varied as a local tavern to a Houston, Texas, church and community center. The historic church structure is connected to an eye catching four story terra cotta and glass building that houses art galleries and studio spaces for the university’s College of Art and Design. It is connected by a dramatic glass atrium, which affords additional display space and a modern concourse for educational and social gatherings.
