Description/Abstract

"The city is enhanced by architecture form which participates in the urban fabric as a means of connection, therefore promoting the formation of community... The intent is to propose developemnt for portions of the Central Artery Master Plan in Boston, Massachusetts. The city is currently in the process of relocating a major infrastructural element from its present location above grade to a tunnel beneath the city. Demolition of the exiting central artery offers the city an opportunity to infill much of the land and restore surface level streets reconnecting the east sire of the interstate to the downtown area...

The Design will address the formation of community at multiple scales including the scale of the city, the district, the street, and the building. In relation to the city as a whole, public transportation to and from the site will act as means of integrating this community into the greater community of Boston."
