Kenmore Square T Station
The Kenmore Square Public Improvements Project revitalized the Square’s environment by creating better-defined spaces for both pedestrian and vehicular traffic. DiMella Shaffer’s soaring steel and glass canopy of the new Kenmore Station bus terminal creates a beautiful juxtaposition to the ornate, more traditional facades along Commonwealth Avenue and allows a view across the square for the first time since the 1970s. The geometry of the stainless steel and glass canopy, derived from the section of a cone, is a feat of structural engineering. Combined with the wholesale upgrade of the below-grade station, Kenmore Square looks to the future as the city’s latest state-of-the-art intermodal transportation hub.
