The Future Decker exhibition is part of an ongoing exploration and documentation of the ways in which existing triple deckers have shaped the City of Boston, while inviting residents to envision the future of this iconic New England vernacular building typology.
Built en masse mostly between the 1880s and 1930s, the triple decker was an affordable entry point for many immigrant families who came to call Boston home.
This exhibition invites a larger audience of residents, from those in the targeted triple decker rich neighborhoods, to design professionals and enthusiasts to visit the BSA Space, and share their own stories and experiences with triple deckers and possible new ways to re-integrate them into the fabric of the city. This exhibition is supported by the work produced by Wentworth Institute of Technology architecture students through their conceptualization of Future Deckers; recorded and transcribed community conversations with residents in triple decker dense neighborhoods in partnership with Local Voices Network, multi-medium images created by local artists, among other items.
