A series of events and panel discussions exploring the architecture of the Dudley Municipal Building will be held in the months leading up to the opening of the new structure.

Curated by Sasaki Associates and Mecanoo Architecten, the designers of the building, the exhibit at the Boston Architectural College on Newbury Street will examine the design process for the $115-million project in Roxbury.

An opening reception at the Boston Architectural College will be held September 4, followed by a series of discussions in September and October.

More information about the exhibit and upcoming events can be found here.

The new six-story structure, which broke ground in March of 2012 and was “topped off” in June, incorporates the original façade of the historic Ferdinand Furniture Building and once completed in January 2015, will be the new home of Boston Public Schools. In addition to the use by the city, the ground-floor of the 215,000-square-foot structure will be used for street-level retail.
