Housing Urban Design Workshop Proposal Presentations
For the second BSA Urban Design Workshop, interdisciplinary urban design teams—led by Brian Healy FAIA, Eric Höweler AIA, Beth Whittaker AIA, and the BSA Emerging Professionals Network—will produce housing proposals that aim to balance innovations in residential living with the larger city-building opportunities. On the evening of April 2, the teams will present their proposals and there will be a review and discussion of the designs, their implications for the broader city, and how innovation in housing and urban design can inform Mayor Walsh’s housing initiative.
The proposals focus on sites along Dorchester Avenue (between the Broadway and Andrew MBTA Red Line stops) in Boston, which Mayor Walsh has cited as a potential housing growth zone.
