The Guastavino Project in the Department of Architecture at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology is dedicated to documenting the works of the Guastavino Company in the Boston area. In the late 19th and early 20th century, Rafael Guastavino Moreno and his son Rafael Guastavino Esposito were responsible for nearly a thousand buildings in North America, and this project documents the extant and demolished works in the Boston area. The 65 buildings identified thus far include such significant projects as the Boston Public Library and the Guastavino Company tile factory in Woburn, Massachusetts.

The intent of this project is not to replace other existing sources but to provide digital references and a comprehensive catalog of Guastavino projects in the Boston area.
