An Inside Look at Pei Cobb Freed & Partners

Pei Cobb Freed & Partners is a world-renowned architectural firm that puts its unmistakable stamp of modern luxury on buildings around the globe.

European sensibility and timeless philosophy is brought to life through the firm’s most recent contribution to Boston, 30 Dalton. Passion, creativity and talent lays the foundation for the sophisticated design and architecture of this luxury residential building, located in Back Bay.

Featuring a glass exterior with pewter metal accents used in a variety of different patterns on the north, south and west facades, 30 Dalton’s structure is prismatic with a shallow curve facing Belvidere Street, adding a sense of elegance to this area of Back Bay.

The team of talented architects that make up Pei Cobb Freed & Partners are unique and incomparable to any others. I.M. Pei – now approaching 100 – is one of the firm’s incredible founders, who is respected as the single most important living architect in the world. Co-founder Henry N. Cobb is a Boston native with a Harvard Graduate School of Design education. He is the architect responsible for two of Boston’s most recognizable buildings, the John Hancock Tower, as well as the John Joseph Moakley U. S. Courthouse and Harbor Park.

The firm has many iconic buildings in its portfolio, including the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in Cleveland, the expansion of the Louvre in Paris, and the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C.

A few other major landmarks created by the firm are located right here in Boston – the John F. Kennedy Library, Christian Science Center and the Center for Government and International Studies at Harvard – to name a few.
