Massachusetts Chapel and Cemetery receives architecture award
The Bigelow Chapel at Mount Auburn Cemetery in Cambridge, Massachusetts, received a 2023 National AIA Interior Architecture Award according to this notice from the Journal of the American Institute of Architects. The notice (and link) from that publication also allows for the view of photos of the building.
According to that article, “Built in 1845, Bigelow Chapel at Mount Auburn Cemetery in Cambridge, Mass., was one of the first crematories in New England. Although it had become mostly inoperable in recent years due to poor maintenance and a dearth of accessibility features, a renovation and a new, glass-walled addition from Boston-based William Rawn Associates have reinvigorated the historical space.”
