Walking Tour: Art Deco in Boston’s Financial District

Complement your “Building Blocks: Art Deco” course with a Boston By Foot tour around Boston’s downtown, and discover Boston’s rich collection of Art Deco architecture.

Lavish and eclectic, Art Deco’s geometric shapes conjure images of a streamlined technological age reflected in the emergence of skyscrapers, aviation, and telecommunications through the 1920s and 1930s. From Harold Field Kellogg’s Batterymarch Building to Arthur Bowditch’s Paramount Theatre to TRO Jung|Brannen’s contemporary interpretations, discover the many hidden architectural treasures in an area that has experienced several cycles of destruction and renewal. This incredible eye-opening tour is all about discovery and will change the way you look at Boston.

Boston By Foot promotes public awareness and appreciation of Boston’s rich history and architectural heritage by offering a wide range of guided tour tours and programs.
