The New England Holocaust Memorial has received international acclaim for its moving design, touching words and names, and its one-of-a-kind, outside location. Created and funded entirely by the greater Boston community, the Memorial is situated on a lovely walkway that has been transformed into an extraordinary place of remembrance.

Colin Flavin, AIA, is the Founding Principal of Flavin Architects in Boston and uniquely qualified to lead this special tour of the Memorial. In a world of computer-generated design work, he still goes back to his UCSC roots of being an avid sketch artist, hand-drawing interesting buildings or architectural details that continually expands his repertoire.

At MIT, where Colin received his Masters of Architecture, he was awarded the Chamberlain Prize for Design Excellence. Prior to founding Flavin Architects in 1991, he was an Associate at Benjamin Thompson & Associates, working as a designer on projects that included Union Station in Washington, D.C. and South Street Seaport in New York City, as well as some of the firms unique beach houses on Martha’s Vineyard and Cape Cod.  Under his stewardship, Flavin Architects has won state and national design awards and the firm's work has appeared in a number of publications.
