What if the city street you are standing on could transform into a space that could transform to meet multiple needs—all in the same week! One day a grocery store, the next day a park, the next day a walk-in health clinic. Could the stagnant spaces of the street—storefront, sidewalk, curbs, street parking, and roads—be used to counter some of the challenges (technological, environmental, and social) we currently face? This is the premise behind the Autonomous Block, conceived by CBT Architects, the curators of the exhibition Balancing Act: Urbanism & Emerging Technologies. This workshop, for students in grades 8 -12, will begin with a discussion with CBT Architects about the potential reality behind the Autonomous Block, then students will design their own sections for the block of the future through hands-on drawing and model building.

This program is for students in 8th -12th grades. 30 Spaces available.

BSA Space is one block from South Station. Enter through the BSA Space entrance and go up the green staircase. The program begins promptly at start time.
