Pre-invited competition_project proposal 2010


The beautiful historical site represents a chance for subtle unique rearrangement with its own identity. We propose to arrange entrance and exhibition hall under the main square, which is surrounded by three charming, historical buildings. The new space intervention is seen only by four gentle skylights, which give a new meaning to the existing square, they let the existing architecture to still be seen, as well as they alert that there is something else going on underground.

Article source: Map-Lab, inc.

The International Living Future Institute launched the Living City Design Competition in 2010, seeking designs for our cities in the year 2035. map-lab’s submission was ResilienCity. ResilienCity seeks to set the vision for the future of Boston’s Innovation District, a new neighborhood built on greyfield and brownfield sites that will provide residences and workplaces for over 300,000 people. We have reached the tipping point where we need to think of the whole, not the self. We have arrived at a time when we need to stop behaving selfishly and begin to explore how we can all come together as a community to create environments that are culturally enriching, healthier, and equitable. We come back to nature to do this.
