Shapiro Terrace

Location: Brandeis University, Waltham, Massachusetts
Architect: Capone Architecture for Pergola Design
Completed: Anticipated 2023

The terrace and walls at the Shapiro Campus Center Building on Brandeis’ Waltham campus were deteriorating. Brandeis hired Studio 2112 to reimagine the hardscape and connection to the great lawn on the south side of the building. The desire for an outdoor dining area, improved pedestrian circulation and a shade structure were part of the design program. Working with Nick Capone from Capone Architecture we have been developing concepts for a large pergola to define the space and add a human scaled element to this iconic campus building. Thanks to Covid, the project construction is on hold.
