The building at the corner of Washington and Summer streets in downtown Boston, MA, was designed by Daniel Burnham in the Beaux-Arts architecture style. This was his last major project and regarded as one of the best examples of Beaux Arts Architecture In the United States. It is on the National Register of Historic Places and a Boston Landmark.
The historic canopy from 1912 was removed in the 1950’s and disappeared. By using historic photos, 3D modeling and sculpting Allen Metals re-created this monumental canopy which was over 150 linear feet.
The canopy was cast in aluminum and painted with a high-performance paint system. Finally it was shipped and clad over the structural steel framework which was previously installed by Ryan Iron Works.
