When an Architect Sculpts …
Want to get a jump-start on upcoming deals? Meet the major Boston players at one of our upcoming events!
|At Friday's opening of CBT Architects principal Richard Bertman?s sculpture exhibit, Three Point Perspective, at the Boston Center for the Arts, we ran into his family, friends, and colleagues. Here's Harriet Zelermyer, her stepson, Goulston & Storrs real estate attorney Andrew Zelermyer, his three-year-old Julia, his sister Laurie Jo Kotzen, and Sandy Bertman, Richard?s wife and Andrew?s aunt. News Flash: Little Julia is at the Creative Playgroup camp this summer and she doesn?t like swimming (but that was Friday). Andrew says he's busy with retail leases and some retail development activity, mostly in the suburbs. Sandy says her marriage to Richard has lasted because she likes her counseling work as much as he likes his art and architecture. ?He works all the time,? she said. ?Even on vacations, he's always sketching.?|
|In designing some of the major developments in town—Atlantic Wharf, the Mandarin, and a master plan to redevelop the Prudential Center—Richard often works with conservation-minded folk like the Boston Preservation Alliance?s Sarah Kelly and Christine Piontek, above. They're preparing to announce in two weeks the 12 winners of the 2010 Preservation Awards. Sarah says they have ?an awesome event planned? but can't divulge the location. With them is design student Gary ?GG? Willis, who's working on the prototype of a bed that can be converted into a sofa or an easel. Can't remember your dreams? Just hop out of bed and draw them.|
