Imaginations of Home
Imaginations of Home explores housing through a variety of perspectives. We invite you to explore the work of many groups reimagining housing models for Boston and its communities. Explore the innovative ideas from Boston residents and designers who submitted to Co-Creating Boston’s Future-Decker. See the possible impact of “future-deckers” in Boston and why that matters in Past, Present, Future-Decker. Tour around the 3D model created by high school students in It Takes a Village. Join a class of Wentworth architecture students in reimagining Blue Hill Avenue in Dorchester in Weaving the Urban Fabric, and finally, view the winning designs from the Greater Boston Affordable Housing Competition put together by joint teams of graduate students and design professionals. We invite you to explore all these diverse perspectives and to share your own in the Housing Design Studio.
Presenters at Intersections symposium talk participatory design
Climate change continues to threaten communities worldwide. Issues of racial and economic equity are causing many to re-evaluate practices that have been customary for centuries. And Boston has its first elected female mayor of color. At this crucial moment, the BSA is hosting "Intersections: Equity, Environment + The City" in conjunction with BSA Women in Design and BosNOMA.
