The walls of NADAAA, the award-winning Boston architecture and urban design firm, are disarmingly neutral, the monochromatic loft giving the impression of being a living, breathing blank canvas. Those walls encompass a hive of activity; NADAAA is a busy place, and the fruits of its labor surround the designers, architects, project managers, technicians, and behind-the-scenes people, as if to say, “Keep going; just look at what you’ve already done.” Small-scale models of soon-to-be landmarks grow out of glass-enclosed tables. Photographic patchworks of past and future projects cluster together on the walls, complemented by jutting 3D prototypes below, all of them physical manifestations of the art of progress.
The result is stunning. And one of the forces behind it all is Katie Faulkner ’83.
