Located in the East Boston Shipyard, the ICA Watershed provides 15,000 SF of dedicated installation art exhibition space for the Institute of Contemporary Art. An adaptive reuse of a WW2 era copper pipe factory, the project required the full reconstruction of the condemned building. Nonetheless, the ICA Watershed was executed on an accelerated fast track schedule with all work completed in 28 weeks.
The ICA Watershed is always free and represents the ICA’s long term commitment to enriching the Boston arts community.
