Tour of Boston Children's Hospital "Skinny Binney"

The Main Building Addition at Boston Children's Hospital, often referred to as "Skinny Binney" is a 116,000 square foot, ten-story urban infill building that contains much needed expansion space for the ED, Imaging, Same Day Surgery, Neurology, Pharmacy and four floors of new inpatient beds in alignment with the existing hospital.  The building has prominent street frontages along Binney Street and the main drop-off for the hospital.

The Binney Street facade is a dramatic faceted butt-glazed curtainwall that greatly simplifies the complex urban texture that exists on Binney Street, while placing emphasis on a two-story pedestrian arcade along Binney Street that defines the ambulance entrance on one end and incorporates a pocket park on the other end.

The Payette team led by Sho-Ping Chin, FAIA will be our tour guides and we will hear from representatives of Boston Children's Hospital.  The tour will start at the main hospital entrance at 5:00pm.  The tour will be limited to 40 people.  Please register to reserve your space.
