Located in Boston’s Seaport District, 10 World Trade is a new lab and office building sited on one of the city’s most visible and strategic parcels. With extensive resiliency measures and a design that stands out, Sasaki’s Ten World Trade Center has plans to protect the Seaport District from sea level rise and a tide of monotony.
Sasaki, the multidisciplinary architecture, engineering, and landscape firm has designed Ten World Trade Center both for architectural novelty and resilience with swooping geometric forms. The firm has been a key consultant on studies focusing on climate change resiliency in the Seaport District.
The design adds an aesthetic distinction to the district, and also addresses the environmental issue of resilience and the effect of the predicted 40-inch rise in harbor water levels by 2070.
This project will require an experienced team with a deep understanding of the scope, and safety requirements and Walters Inc. is honored that we have been awarded this project.
