IDeAS: Innovative Design Alternatives Summit – Day 1

The Boston Redevelopment Authority (BRA) and the City of Boston, with sponsorship from The Boston Foundation, the BSA Foundation, and Autodesk, will bring together designers, developers, city officials, community leaders and academics in a unique two-day event, the IDeAS: Innovative Design Alternatives Summit.

This two-day conference will kick off on May 6 at Faneuil Hall with a plenary panel focusing on how innovative design can contribute to the quality of life in Boston, to be followed by a day-long summit on May 7 held at BSA Space, 290 Congress Street, MA 02210.

This summit emerges in response to the design challenge raised by Mayor Martin J. Walsh in his December speech to the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce, in which he encouraged developers and the design community to “reach beyond (y)our comfort zone” and “take design to a new level” to build inspiration into Boston’s emerging urban landscape. 

BRA board member and President Emeritus of Boston Architectural College Ted Landsmark was a driving force behind the organization of the summit.
