Description/Abstract

"In today’s society, the relationship between architecture and political

behavior is largely undetected. Such is the case with Boston, Massachusetts’

present City Hall, where the brutalist structure was once believed to broadcast

Boston’s power and importance however time has shown it to be an unengaged

object in Boston’s historical landscape with a plaza devoid of activity. This

project proposes a new city hall and plaza design for Boston that proves through

the lens of the corner, physical architectural attributes can make Boston’s City

Hall a successful civic space that embodies Boston’s history, democracy and

public."
