Although its continuous effort, it still remains as a small not well-known museum in Boston, and thus the museum is trying to have a new strategy to out reach to publics as well as tourists to Boston.

PRAUD’s strategy is to propose a pavilion and street furnitures that can reach to the people in other neighborhoods as well as tourist to Boston. The strategy is to make a urban landscape field on the site by aggregating piece-meals of street furnitures that will be donated  by each organization or resident for a main event of West End Museum show-case, and after the event, those piece-meals will be displaced around major public spaces in Boston so that people can recognize West End Museum and its neighborhood  without actually coming to West End.Therefore, displaced urban furnitures can work as urban follies thatcan be recognized by public and help them to learn and understand about the history of West End.
