The BSA Urban Design Committee explores big ideas about cities. Planning, transit, landscape, policy and design are common themes of regular lectures, panels and discussions.
Please join the City of Boston and the Boston Society of Architects/AIA for the announcement of the Northern Avenue Bridge Ideas Competition winners, hear jury members discuss inspiring ideas that emerged from the competition, and celebrate all the participants.
Boston’s story is often told in part through its history of mapping. City maps reveal how the land is shaped and what values were important to the cartographers and citizens who commissioned them. Ubiquitous visual tools today, maps also talk about property, insurance, neighborhoods, history, religion, politics, and even the future. Join us on Tuesday, March 1, to learn more about some provocative past depictions of Boston using the visual language of maps.
