Having spent more than four decades revitalizing cities, waterfronts and neighborhoods, including serving as interim chief planner for the City of Boston in the early 2000s, Ken brings an unparalleled depth of experience and passion to the L Street Power Station project.
He sees this project as a proof of concept for everything that the Imagine Boston 2030 plan – which Ken has helped to shape – is setting out to achieve. From the new relationship with the waterfront, celebrating our heritage as a city, restoring the incredible turbine hall, building a better relationship to the neighborhood, and the opportunity for creating a mixed-use destination out of a vacant industrial site, this project brings the goals laid out in the master plan to life.
Ken received his Bachelor of Arts from Amherst College and Bachelor of Architecture from the University of Toronto. Prior to that he did graduate studies in international affairs and architecture at Columbia University. He also received his Masters in international affairs and architecture from New York University. He is the recipient of the 2010 American Institute of Architects Thomas Jefferson Award for Public Design Excellence and the 2014 Sustainable Buildings Canada Lifetime Achievement Award.
