BOSTON (AP) - A New England architect who helped design a number of modern Boston’s landmarks is being remembered at one of his creations - Boston City Hall.

A memorial service is slated for Saturday afternoon for Henry Austin Wood III, who died at his home in Boston Jan. 27, the Providence Journal reported earlier this month (https://bit.ly/2kSvtn9 ). He was 87.

Wood helped design City Hall, Back Bay Station, the Hynes Convention Center, among others as a partner with Kallmann, McKinnell & Wood Architects, the Journal reported.

He also restored the Clingstone mansion in Jamestown, Rhode Island.

The 23-room mansion was built by distant relatives on a rock in Narragansett Bay in 1905. It had been abandoned for more than 20 years and fallen into disrepair when Wood purchased it in 1960.
