The Boston Globe Celebrates WBA: “Boston Architectural Firm keeps Going Bigger and Better”, May 15, 2024

"One of our recent clients, the Zeiterion Performing Arts Center in New Bedford, eventually revealed that they hired us because we do cruise ships and know how to move people in and out of a theater, which was one of their problems.”

Boston Globe Article, May 15, 2014. 

From a small office in Post Office Square, Wilson Butler Architects has been quietly  changing the way people cruise for more than tow decades. 

“Wilson Butler does more than design megaships. Last year, the firm finished work on Silversea’s latest ship, the Silver Nova. The 728-passenger luxury ship prioritizes uninterrupted vistas and expansive windows so passengers can easily see the ocean and ports to connect with their surroundings. The firm has also been involved in the innovative Celebrity Edge series of ships, particularly with the futuristic, design-forward performance space called Eden.”

“The architects at Wilson Butler continue to design and restore theaters and performance spaces, but they’ve seen their business come full circle. Where once Royal Caribbean was looking for a true theater at sea, theater companies are now looking to the firm to design their performance spaces with the efficiency of those on cruise ships.”
