Nice job. I was here last weekend and its pretty cool what they did with the connection of the old building. I agree on the interior commment it was a bit disconnected except maybe the main lobby was kinda cool.

this is a cool project. Amazing exterior detailing! I was really disappoionted when I saw the interiors. Seems like two different office were involved. Did someone else do the interiors? Anyone know? Because its lousey.

Polshek’s new WGBH headquarters building 

Commuters on the Massachusetts Turnpike are in for a real treat. As they muscle their way in to Boston, they will be greeted each day with changing digital images projected from a 30 ft tall screen located at the terminus of a 480 ft long bridge-like structure dubbed “the beam”. The beam is part of the WGBH Public Television’s new Headquarters building in Brighton, Massachusetts designed by New York-based Polshek Partnership Architects.

The $85 million complex consists of a seven-storey office building and a two-storey technical operations building united by the creative content “beam” building. The project consolidates WGBH TV, radio, interactive and educational activities into a single efficient media complex. Major design elements include a 200-seat theatre, music performance spaces, and larger television and radio studios, which are visible from the street.
