FREE ADMISSION

By 2050 it is predicted that the sea level around Boston will rise about 16”.  Planners and architects are busily proposing a multitude of solutions to protect the vanishing edge.  Boston has a long history of landmaking, expanding ever outward the city’s edge.  Join panelists Abby Suckle, FAIA, founder of cultureNOW; Peter Kuttner, FAIA, Principal of Cambridge Seven Architects, and  Franziska Amacher, FAIA, Principal Amacher Associates,  for a provocative look at how quickly the city’s edge is changing, and discuss the implications for our built environment over the next decades. 

 All Bostonians of a certain age will tell you about the Where's Boston Exhibition in 1975. Created by Cambridge Seven for the Bicentennial, it was a multimedia show that played continually in a red white and blue tent in the Prudential Center Plaza until a blizzard dumped 28" of snow on the city in 1978 and the tent fell down. It took a snapshot of the City at that moment in time.  That was half a century ago. What does it look like today?  And what will it look like in the future?   

 

Inspired by Where’s Boston, we will put together a Powerpoint presentation highlighting the city’s edge showing the places, people, stories and events that shaped the city, followed by a discussion.
