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.
Explore residents’ perspectives and experiences with triple deckers and possible new ways to re-integrate them into the fabric of the city.
A Community Vision for Charlestown

The participating firms—designLAB architects, Charles Rose Architects, and EYP—have been working closely with the BSA, the National Park Service (NPS), the City of Boston, Boston Landmarks Commission, and Charlestown community members to transform approximately 3,000 sf at one end of the building into a useful and inspired amenity for the neighborhood.
