Design Biennial Boston returns to The Greenway
You may have noticed some new structures popping up throughout our parks. The Greenway is pleased to once again host installations by Design Biennial Boston, 2017.
Design Biennial Boston is a nationally recognized program that provides a public platform for New England’s early-career, independent professional design talent. 2017 is the fifth iteration. Conceived and curated by over,under, the event is sponsored by the Rose Kennedy Greenway Conservancy, Autodesk BUILD Space, the Mayor’s Office of New Urban Mechanics, the Boston Art Commission, the Boston Society of Architects/AIA (BSA), the BSA Foundation, and pinkcomma gallery.
Following an open call for entries which included submissions from each of New England’s states, the jury selected four firms whose work provides ample evidence of the region’s vibrant pool of designers. The four selected teams were each awarded $10,000 to construct site-specific installations on the Rose Kennedy Greenway and were provided access to advanced fabrication equipment at Autodesk BUILD Space.
“We are excited once again to host the Design Biennial Boston on The Greenway,” says Lucas Cowan, curator of public art for The Greenway Conservancy. “The 2017 season on The Greenway will be home to a wonderful confluence of architecture and public art this summer, showcasing a diversity of innovative thinkers and makers.”
Recognizing emerging architects, landscape architects, and designers who have created inspiring and innovative practices in New England, Design Biennial Boston will be on display through October 2017.
