Design Charrette: Living with Water

SB2 | Wednesday, October 29, 1:00pm–4:00pm
It’s a familiar refrain: if Superstorm Sandyhad hit a few hours earlier (or later), Boston too would have flooded. Scientists know that seas are rising, storm severity is increasing, and coastal cities need to grapple with an increasingly wet world. The Boston Harbor Association argues that Living with Water strategies adopted from the Dutch and elsewhere are the way forward. On Sandy’s second anniversary, join us for a hands-on design workshop to imagine what this might mean at a variety of locations where the city meets the sea.

This charrette is one component of a slate of ABX workshops on resiliency, and complements a larger design competition organized by the City of Boston, Boston Redevelopment Authority, Coastal Zone Management, and The Boston Harbor Association.

Free and open to the public. Self-report for CE credit. Please join the charrette at 4:00pm for a public presentation and reception.
