“Armchair Traveler: Architectural Gems of Boston and Cambridge”
Hearkening back to colonial-era roots on twisted and narrow streets, and juxtaposed
against some of the most futuristic and international of buildings, Boston and
Cambridge offers a myriad of architectural styles and gems to please every taste. In
our exploration of the city, we’ll even look at a few buildings with Scandinavian
connections. Please join us for this armchair lecture on local architecture, to whet our
appetites for the day when we can walk and explore the city more freely.
