boston marathon memorial
Cast and Fabricated Bronze
The two Boylston Street sites of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing transformed with this beautiful memorial. Each site is 60 feet long, the sidewalk inlaid with bronze and stone. A central stone monument at each site pays homage to the three victims. Four cast bronze light beacons at each site stretch towards the sky and illuminate the site with new hope. They are 16 and 20 feet tall, and were cast in 56 individual pieces. We were honored to work with the following collaborators:
Pablo Eduardo, Artist; Robert Corning of Stantec, Landscape architecture; Pat Garrett, Stone work; Ross Art Studio, cast glass; McCourt Construction, site work
Fabrication & Design
Powder Coated Steel
A project where our teams creativity was allowed to truly flow. We were given full trust in the design, and the opportunity to bounce ideas back and forth with the client. Teamwork and planning allowed for flawless execution and an extremely precise install. The goal from the client was to avoid bulky vertical elements and focus on an elegant streamlined design. Powder coated steel stringers and railings combine with ash wood backlit treads for a completely custom and modern feel.
The Study At university city
Bronze Casting and Fabrication
Located between the University of Pennsylvania and Drexel University in Philadelphia, “The Study at University City” highlights the company logo. This casting is a larger version of the one the artist made for Yale University (2008). The prototype was digitally scanned, then 3D printed at three times the original size before being molded and cast in bronze.
Fabrication & Design
Twelve warehouse-style gridded steel and glass walls, designed, built, and installed on site at the PillPack Corporate Offices in Somerville, MA. This project was engineered by us at Sincere, consisting of 412 angle iron frames, and over 5000 machine screws. Raw steel and exposed hardware give the space an industrial feel, and the result is evidence of our technical design and precision execution.
