A Monument To Invention

This beautiful plaza honors Northeastern University's Bernard Marshall Gordon, a prolific high-tech inventor.

Cambridge, MA.-based Pressley Associates designer Matt Latimer designed the plaza with a grayscale paving pattern evocative of electron paths around an atom or moon orbits around a planet, inlaid in a red brick pavement. Ergonomic stainless steel benches provide viewing seats for the monument.

This is the latest in a series of Northeastern campus landscape improvements designed by Pressley, which replaced many of the campus’ asphalt-paved roads and parking lots with curved brick pedestrian walks, greenspaces, granite-curbed tree/flower planters, and the landmark Krentzman Quadrangle on Huntington Avenue.
