We are proud to report that a Vintage Rockport postcard is featured in a new video about the construction of the Shalin Liu Performance Center in Rockport. The video, created by videographer Elissa Mintz for the website US Building Digest, looks at the construction of the center and the challenges of transforming a historic building into a concert hall with optimal acoustic and concert-viewing features. It features an interview with Alan Joslin of Epstein Joslin Architects, the firm that designed Shalin Liu. Our contribution was a 1911 view of Main St. showing the original building where Shalin Liu now stands.
You can watch the video here: Historic Building Meets Today’s Technology: the Shalin Liu Performance Center.
Despite having watched the building rise up, and having been inside it many times, I still learned new things from this video. Interesting.
