lecture & exhibit of our work at Roger Williams University!

"Context Enriches Craft"

Concurrent with an exhibit of our work, TT lectured on how the context of each respective site can enrich the craft of architecture. Topics included our work within a wide range of building types, interconnecting sustainable site properties within the natural cycle and built environment, the influence of site history to uncover the poetic identity of place, expressing construction as tectonic art, and our need to advance civic responsibility.

Thank you to everyone at Roger Williams for such a great evening, and for hosting our office with fellow university faculty and students.

Included as 1 of 6 firms on this years 2017 WAN Practice of the Year shortlist!

Congratulations to all other firms on the list and we look forward to the final announcement in February.   

From the jury:

“Touloukian Touloukian practices a clear and compelling design ethos that spans across project types and scales. The design ideas are deeply thought through” Nicholas Garrison

“In terms of importance, it has to be said that big architectural statements are as important as small urban/community concerned architectural contributions which form a part of people's everyday life. There is usually a very limited budget when it comes to small buildings and a huge ambition to serve a variety of purposes. The examples of the firm are showing environmentally friendly structures in different parts of the built environment and it is hard to judge how successful or not they are.” Eva Jiricna

“Interesting designs. High quality. Great sensibility to materials. Poetic approach.” Louis Becker

Fisher Hill Reservoir Park Gatehouse project has been awarded a 2017 Massachusetts Historical Commission Preservation Award! We would like to thank the Town of Brookline, Klopfer Martin Design Group Landscape Architects, and our team of consultants who worked so diligently to bring this special historic structure back to life. 

Located within the Fisher Hill Historic District and named to the National Register of Historic Places, the reservoir site and Gatehouse played a vital role in the development of important water supply public work projects throughout the late 19th century. This time period reflects Brookline’s central role in providing infrastructure for a rapidly expanding population. As a result, Brookline developed a legacy of water reserves and notable architectural gatehouse structures of the Richardsonian Romanesque style. Dating back to 1887, the Fisher Hill Reservoir and supporting Gatehouse represent these very qualities of architecture, landscape design and civic planning that are a part of the Town’s historic identity.
