I’m glad I was able to read this story – it’s kind of cool.
The house that the Central Artery built: Big Dig engineer turns highway refuse into a striking home for his family – By Robert Campbell, The Boston Globe
Local engineer Paul Pedini realized there was a lot of used materials being discarded during the destruction of the Central Artery.
So, working with architects at Single Speed Design, he built himself a new home, made mostly out of steel beams, cables, and concrete left over after the removal of the Central Artery.
Re-use of materials. Genius.
Sure, the home looks a little cold. Nothing wrong with that.
It’s “post-industrial”, right?
