Designing Boston: “Defining Innovation”

Mayor Martin Walsh has outlined a vision of a Boston that is “thriving, healthy, and innovative,” charging that our built environment should reflect “a culture of imagination.” What does innovative design mean for Boston architecture and for its architects? Join us as attorney Michael Ross moderates a diverse panel that includes a developer, an architect, a landscape architect, and a Boston Redevelopment Authority (BRA) board member. They will discuss opportunities for innovative design in a 21st-century city and how new thinking about municipal processes, private development, and design practice will get us there.
