Design for the future requires consideration of factors beyond the work environment. It must accommodate interaction and balance, focus on value, have an understanding of purpose and a critical attention to detail. The shift of 2020’s remote work and social distancing sparked new thinking of what space means in an urban environment. The need to pivot and reimagine what places and spaces can be to deliver healthy and productive experiences has developers and designers alike rethinking short and long term planning. With a new found attention on these spaces, who are the clients that hire architects creating urban space? This quarter we will meet clients who are helping to transform the urban landscape.

Planning for the next 100 years: The story of the L Street Station Redevelopment
The L Street Station in South Boston, the former home of the Boston Edison Company, was on the forefront of major electrical innovations at a time when the world was first becoming electrified. This history of industrial innovation left behind magnificent turbine halls that will form the heart of a new mixed-use district in the South Boston neighborhood, making it one of the most innovative projects in Boston and beyond. As the redevelopment will play out over the course of the next 10 years, making good decisions that will endure, yet be flexible, will be key to the success of the development.
We’ll join the leaders of this project to hear about their plans for placemaking, project phasing, and strategies for managing risk over the lifespan of a multi-year development.
