World's End, August 2016

251-acre park designed by famed architect Frederick Law Olmstead. The retreating glacier helped create the geology of Boston Harbor, including the islands and the four spoon-shaped hills (called drumlins) that comprise World’s End. This landscape also features saltwater marshes, meadows, woodlands, and granite ledges covered with red cedars and blueberry thickets. In the 1880s, wealthy Boston businessman John Brewer built a farming estate. In 1890, he hired Frederick Law Olmsted to design a large subdivision. While the homes were never built, four miles of carriage roads remain.

Jeppe Hein: A New End. A reflective labyrinth structure, made of mirrored posts of differing heights, whose form mimics the shape of the surrounding drumlin formations. Hein draws inspiration from the stunning natural beauty and landscape at World’s End, which features a combination of Frederick Law Olmsted-designed and natural landscapes with spectacular views of the Boston harbor and skyline.
